I think rookies making more then veteran players suck. Some kid who has never played an nfl game making more the pro bowl players because he is a high draft pick. The draft needs its own pay scale. Second , the fran. tag sucks. Cassel base pay for 2009 could be 14.6 million. Bradys base pay is 5 million(plus 3million bonus on Feb. 27th) Brady has been with the Patriots 9 years , 4 super bowls and is headed for the Hall of Fame. He took less in 2005 so the Patriots could pay other players. Now a guy, who did better then anyone could of hoped, is making almost 3 times as much in base pay. Casel has won all of 11 games.
