you're arguing a point I'm not arguing
the slotting scale for the 1st round is totally necessary and was totally needed...
but it hasn't changed one bit for picks 22 through Mr. Irrelevant
Paying Sam Bradford more than Tom Brady was disgusting and insane. They have this totally right. Give these top 10 picks 4 guaranteed years, that's fair. Totally 100% fair.
The fact that players can no longer receive new contracts or hold out for better deals until 3 years of service is disgusting, given the fact that NFL careers are so fragile and one hit could end it all.
The Seahawks have a $20M a year QB playing for $350,000 and he has to play for NFL welfare wage for two more seasons before he OR THE SEAHAWKS can even think about giving him a new deal.
The fact the NFLPA agreed to this is hilarious and shows their ineptitude.
