The NFL should come up with a new rule, that if a team drafts you, they own you for 5 years until a contract is made to avoid this.
They should also come up with a system of pay for draft picks.
there is a system if you want to call it that; cap space has to be allocated to rookies.

Fools.

I think the NFL should strong arm the Union and make all Rookie Contracts a guaranteed three year deal, at a reasonable rate. Then after at is up the team can sign the player to huge money. Think of all of the money that wouldn't have been wasted on First round busts. Tim Couch, Ryan Leaf....

Kind of make it like the NBA rookie contracts. Here it is, this is the only contract you can get, take it or leave it.
I absolutely agree. Here are kids that are "supposed" to not be making any money in college, and they turn their noses up at 3 or 4 or even 5 mil a YEAR.
Maybe agents shouldn't be allowed in sports either.

Re: JaMarcus Russell Still Holding Out

Russell is a talent for sure, but he is overhyped. LSU didn't even win their conference last season. Didn't even win their division. His asking price is insane. I hope this is where it stops fellas, I mean the insane bullshit contracts. Wages for us working stiffs have either stagnated or have started to tank, while these schmucks keep asking for more $$$$$$. I hope Al has the balls I think he does and tells this punk where to go.

Re: JaMarcus Russell Still Holding Out

This is getting ridiculous...the league should have a cap on the draft slot contracts, plain and simple. I feel bad for the Raider fans out there, they don't deserve this. Reminds of the Heath Shuler holdout, only a 100 times worse.

Re: JaMarcus Russell Still Holding Out

I really hate rookies who hold out. Someone should come and let them know that they have yet to prove themselves on the professional level. This is really ridiculous.
