Chiefs get largest rookie pool to pay draft picks
 
[URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3385956"]ESPN - Chiefs get largest rookie pool to pay draft picks - NFL[/URL]

According to numerous experts, the [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=kan"][COLOR=#000000]Kansas City Chiefs[/COLOR][/URL] had the best draft. Now, they have to pay for those players.

The Chiefs received the highest rookie pool numbers by the NFL, a source said on Wednesday. With 12 draft choices -- two first-rounders taken in the top 15 -- the Chiefs have a rookie pool of $8,221,790, tops in the league. Not only do they have two first-rounders to sign, but they have a second and three thirds.

Even though agents and teams get around the rookie pool with contract escalators, post first-year option bonuses and one-time incentives, the rookie pool was created to somehow slot the signings of draft choices by the position they were selected. Each selection in the draft is given a value, which is a predetermined cap number. All rookies, including undrafted rookies, have to fit within the assigned rookie pool.

we won't even need trickery with our picks i don't think. 3 guys at ~1mill each and some min deals more or less. surprised we got 4.5mill.

i mean, JAX had a top ten pick and they get less than us.
