    I would wager $100.00, the odds are not as bad as powerball.

    At a $100 wager it would earn you $300,000

    Is it 30x or 3000x? Given the odds there, I'd say it's actually 30:1 so 100 would get you $3000

    Lowest odds are 500-1 which is Calvin Johnson so I assume 3,000 to 1 is correct - although with those kind of odds you probably can't bet too high in one shot.

    +3000 means $100 turns into ~$3,000, not $300,000.

    Saying it's 3,000:1 means that, for example, you'd get better odds of, say, the Raiduhs winning the SB. Somehow that doesn't seem right to me.

    I'd suspect they'd factor in things such as with the Pats being a veteran team, its unlikely the team would put any rookie in a position where he'd be noticed as a rookie of the year.

    I'd also suspect that from a positional standpoint, RBs, WRs and sometimes QB rookies can have big numbers. A safety or CB making a high number of tackles doesn't get the same attention 1500 yards rushing or receiving does or 4000 yards passing might, even if the defensive play was critical to a team's success.

    All that being said though, given the Samuel situation and potential DB injuries Meriweather could wind up getting a lot of playing time - but the coaches clearly would prefer to keep him in a nickle role at least for awhile - but it still could be worth a good bet!

    That's a bit confusing. I always thought ROY was split between OROY and DROY. Does that make Meriweather 3000-1 odds to win DROY?

    I'd be impressed if he won it. I think the league looks at us as a "Team" organization and saves the individual awards for other organizations.

    +3000 means it returns $3000 on a $100 bet. So the payout is more like 30:1. If the payouts were what you thought they were, someone could place $100 on every single player there, including the field, and be guaranteed a positive outcome. :D

    if he would somehow become an impact player on an already strong defense and wins rookie of the year, then that would sure up another superbowl. if a team that's stacked gets more stacked...

    Where have the coaches said this? That's actually not at all what they've said to this point. Peas said they intend to use Meriweather primarily as a Safety, and a CB only in certain situations. He also said drafting Meriweather will allow them to move other players....who might they be thinking about moving?

    Meh, if he plays like Hester on returns, he'll get it.

    since Meriweather has yet to step foot on a practice field, I'd say the odds are pretty long..

    other rookies had minicamps, passing camps, etc.....Meriweather did not participate because of his hamstring
