Hold up just a second... Hall of Fame bound? It's a tad early to be throwing out predictions like that don't you think? Let's see the guy play first.

The NFL has had plenty of busts who were physical freaks.

I agree it seems kind of screwey, but we have to remember that the salary cap limit jumped by nearly 20% this year from last year. Consequently the relative value of all contracts should have jumped the same amount.

Just about every contract we see signed by these guys will probably feel like "holy crap, how much is he getting???" It's just a product of the cap going up.

Besides, we all know that rookie salaries are dictated by what the picks in front and behind those players are getting. There's a bit of a rookie scale.

Does Vernon Davis deserve to be the highest paid TE? Hell no, which is exactly why guys like Gates, Gonzalez, Heath Miller, and Kellen Winslow will all get huge ass paydays when their contract comes due. All this does is raise the market value of a TE up from where it was last year, which makes sense since the cap went up.

Re: Niners make No. 6 pick Davis highest-paid TE

with 2 career catches, and losing 60 lbs in the offseason, i doubt kellen is getting a huge payday any time soon
