Re: Rookie 1st round pick signings

Redskins reach deal with Trent Williams
Posted by Michael David Smith on July 30, 2010 6:12 AM ET
We noted Thursday night that the Redskins could reach an agreement first-round draft pick Trent Williams before sunrise Friday, and that's exactly what happened.

Agent Vincent Taylor, who negotiated the contract along with Ben Dogra, told Jason Reid of the Washington Post that the deal is done and will be signed in time for Williams to practice today.

Re: Rookie 1st round pick signings

No wonder theres a good chance of no football next season. These greedy little bastards are getting paid WAY TO MUCH!

No Bradford deal yet despite offer between $72-$80 million

Re: Rookie 1st round pick signings

Looks like a deal has been done...

Sources: St. Louis Rams, Sam Bradford agree to six-year, $78 million deal - ESPN

This is insane...78 to 80 mil deal with 50 mil guaranteed? Man I hope the league sets a rookie wage scale.

Yeah, I don't get it...giving these guys who haven't played a down in the NFL this kind of money is just the height of stupidity. The system the NBA has in place works pretty well and hopefully the NFL makes a systemic effort to impose some kind of rookie wage scale that makes more sense.

After the whole JaMarcus fiasco, teams should be scare shitless about giving an unproven rookie 50-60 mil guaranteed.

Re: Rookie 1st round pick signings

I agree that this whole rookie pay scale is ridiculous. $50 million guaranteed for Sam Bradford, who hasn't played a single down yet in the NFL, and only played 2 games this past year in college. We need the NBA rookie pay scale, because every year this just gets more and more ridiculous. If I'm not mistaken, Trent Williams at number 4 got about the exact same deal that JaMarcus Russell at number 1 overall got 3 years ago. Not saying that Trent will end up like him.

Trent would have to gain like 20 lbs to get up to Jamarcus Russell's weight lol

yeah no s, espescially a qb with a shitty shoulder, but with the new cba coming you had to figure his guaranteed money would be higher than stafford who had 41 somthing, but 50 is just a joke. it will be interesting to see what the rokie pay scale will be, i imagine the guaranteed money will max out some whee around 20 mil which is still crazy high considering they have never played a down of football in the nfl

Re: Rookie 1st round pick signings

just heard eric berry signed a deal almost identical to trent williams

edit:The Associated Press: Berry, Chiefs agree to deal

ESPN said the deal was for six years and $60 million, with $34 million guaranteed. That would make him the highest-paid safety in history.

Yes, they need to get the rookie payscale in place.

BUT our problem is the price tag for us to retain Donovan just went up. His agent alluded to the contract on RI in an article today. Not for just us BTW but also for the Pats- Brady and Colts-Manning.

Good point. Although it is more of an immediate problem for the Colts and Pats. Especially the Pats, since they don't like to pay their players. I think the Colts will do anything to keep Manning happy, whereas I can see Darth Hoody believing he can win without Brady. Given that BA has done a fair job with contracts, let's see how he works this one out with McNabb.

This is one more example of why a rookie pay scale needs to be in place.
Making a Rookie the highest paid safety in NFL history is one of the dumbest things I think I have ever heard. He may be the next Sean Taylor or Ed Reed but why the hell do you have to pay him more than any of those 2 ever made? Absolutely pathetic that this has not been taken care of yet.

Riduculous to pay a rookie safety 60 million dollars.
