Even though there's not a salary cap in 2010, the NFL's rookie pool continues. The rookie pool is the maximum amount of cap space a team can spend on its rookies. This is part of the reason you'll see JaMarcus Russell (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/18987/JaMarcus_Russell) get paid $3.2 million in year one and $19.9 million in year two.
This year the Chiefs (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/KAN) have about $6 million (http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/insider/columns/story?columnist=pasquarelli_len&id=5170746), according to ESPN's Len Pasquarelli who obtained the full list.
No. 1 on the list is the Rams (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/STL) with nearly $7.6 million in the rookie pool. Two years ago the Chiefs led all teams with $8.2 million in the rookie pool. That year Tyson Jackson (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/71422/Tyson_Jackson) counted just $2.86 million against the cap -- according to USA Today's salary database (http://content.usatoday.com/sports/football/nfl/salaries/teamdetail.aspx?team=16&year=2009) -- so the big contracts don't necessarily mean a big cap number in year one.

Wouldn't two years ago have been Dorsey and not Jackson? Or did I sleep through another year?

doesnt this mean very little, i couldnt imagine any of the rookies to sign a one year contract, so all they have to do is make the first year worth little, and the following year worth a lot. not that hard to figure out

it isn't a big deal ... it's just information


i don't understand why people around here have such are hard time accepting that concept.

every fuggin thread there has to be some issue to fight about ... if not, people invent some stupid ass reason to fight. I beginning to think that the general CPlanet population are seriously retarded.

that's my point ... they are just inventing something to argue about.

The chiefs won't have any problem signing their draftees UNLESS someone gets silly about their demands and even then it won't have anything to do with this rookie cap.
