The reason for the huge signing bonus is to be able to rpo rate it so the cap hit isn't as large in the first few years. Not to save the player from getting cut. That is why the players have no real money in the first 3 years and the yearly salarys swell huge in the final years of the contract so the team can cut them.

Re: How bad will this trend get???

I would really like to see the NFL put an end to the whole non-mantory minicamp thing. This would take this ploy out of the agent's bag of tricks. Then if someone misses a practice you can start hiting him in the bank account. The other thing that causes this proplem is that none to the contracts are guaranteed. If a team can rip up players' contracts at will then the players feel they can as well.

Re: How bad will this trend get???

Here is some more good news for us concerning TO.

"Don't want to alarm Eagles fans, but there are more and more signs wide receiver Terrell Owens' holdout could be a long one. A real loooooong one.

At a minicamp over the weekend, Eagles linebacker Jeremiah Trotter warned that the Eagles could not count on T.O. being on the field this season. Another NFL general manager expressed a similar thought, saying he wouldn't be surprised if T.O. sat out the season.

Everyone knows T.O. is very strong minded, and right now his mind is set on landing a new deal, something the Eagles have given no indication they are willing to give. It's still early, but get ready for many more T.O. updates from now through training camp and into the season."

I know, I know. I have a HUGE problem with the money pro-athletes are paid. I just think a lot of them whine when they are getting paid more money than even the smartest people in this country will ever see.

The big problem is I dont get paid enough, Snyder needs to throw a little love my way lol.

Most definitely! He has the money to spread it around.

Why not send some to all of us that defend him? (at least I do)
