hes going to get more than shockey, hands down. He was drafted a lot higher and Shockey is still on his rookie contract. And its not unrealistic for him to get more than Tony to, the thing is that he was the 6th pick in the draft, which be default gets him a lot of money even though hes just a te.

Im glad we didnt pick winslow.It sounds like he would have rubbed J.G the wrong way and would have been a waist of a pick.Taylor was the correct choice for the team (imo).I can just see the Postons sitting with the Browns F\O asking where the F there fruit basket is !!!

I think it is extremely unusual for a player to get a higher rookie contract than the top player at his position. Even Eli at number 1 did not come close. That last statement sounds like something his agent would say... LOL

Eli at number one has the second most guaranteed (bonus) money in the history of the NFL. That's nothing to sneeze at. If his brother didn't sign for $34.5 million in bonus money a few months ago, he would be first.

If his brother didn't sign for 34.5mill, then he wouldn't have been offered nearly that much. He's rougher now than peyton was when he came out, but his big bro is kinda super-awesome, so...

A couple problems with this. First, we were discussing total contract value, not just bonuses. Eli is not #2 by a long shot. Then, as far as "guaranteed", that $20 million "bonus" is not. It is actually 5 bonuses, some paid down the road for making the roster.

I would have just passed on this, but my post was an attempt to show how ridiculous the Postons' demands are, and couldn't just watch an attempt to rationalize their foolishness. I hope they stand their ground, and Cleveland stands theirs. Would love to see him home for the start of the season!! He could have been on the field now with a team that would have featured him in their offense, instead of getting drafted by a team with an offense in disarray. The Skins F/O has to be rolling on the floor over this one.
