Alright then Mr.SUH... you have not played a damn down but lets pay your ass 100mill with 56 Mil gaurenteed. This makes a hell of alot of sense.

Skins.. you are right as others on the board including myself and Giantone have pointed out paying this kind of cash to unproven players in the NFL is going to lead to an owner's lockout IF they do not put a rookie payscale into the next CBA. This year the contracts are way out of control and are pushing into the RIDONKULOUS category

With out a rookie payscale in place the future of the NFL in genaral is going to be in doubt. The agents basically raise the bar for the top 10 rookies by 18% a year. In ten years a guy coming out and being drafted in the top 10 are going to be the top paid players at thier position without even playing a down. Hell they already are now. Which to me and I am sure to anyone but the players making the money is ludicris.

I just can't see how the game would be able to survive the increase in rookie contracts year after year. Yes the NFL is a cash cow, but let's give that cash to the guys who deserve it not the 50% chance of a nonimpact player guys or guys who have never played at the NFL level.

Not to mention how having a top 5 pick in the NFL draft can really hinder your franchise if you miss on a player, there are less trades in the top 5 because teams are very weary of taking on astronomical salaries for rookies, and teams are out a big chink of change as well.

Alualu agrees to terms with Jags

Posted by Mike Florio on August 1, 2010 10:40 PM ET
In late April, Tyson Alualu became a surprise choice of the Jaguars with the tenth overall pick in the draft. On the first day of August, Alualu is a big step closer to officially joining the team.

The Jags have announced that Alualu has agreed to terms, according to various media outlets reporting the fact of the announcement, which does not yet appear on the team's website.

Alualu's agreement leaves only two unsigned picks in the top ten: Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (No. 2) and Bills running back C.J. Spiller (No. 9).

UPDATE: Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union reports that Alualu has yet to accept the team's current offer.

Close but apparently not done yet:

Re: Rookie 1st round pick signings

I think the NFL rookie wage scale should be fashioned something like the NBA's. This stuff is totally insane. The richest guaranteed $ ever for a QB who played 2 games in his last year of college and has never even played a snap in the NFL? That's just so ass-backwards. I understand the NFL is more brutal than any other sport and you have to get your cash while the getting is good, but something has to change here. I'm not saying 1st round picks shouldn't be instant millionaires. They should. But for a 21 year old rookie to be getting paid more guaranteed dollars than Peyton Manning and Tom Brady? Horseshit.

Re: Rookie 1st round pick signings

So it looks like all the first rounders have been signed. Okung ($48.5 mil/$29 mil guaranteed) came to terms with the Seahawks and Spiller ($37.5 mil/$20.8 mil guaranteed) with the Bills.

Speaking of rookie first rounders, look at the hazing haircut my boy Tebow got in Denver's camp:
