Have the rookie contracts changed everything going forward? This is the year we start to really hear from the veterans about the amount of money first-round draft picks are receiving. If JaMarcus Russell gets the $30 million he is expected to get then the top eight picks of the draft will average $20 million in guaranteed cash. Heck, there are eight unproven players receiving more guaranteed money on average than the proven Larry Johnson. Paying rookies is going to be questioned and there will be some stories before the end of the 2007 season that a rookie wage scale is more than just a hope of veteran players and management. I think it might be time for discussions about a two-to-three-year fixed wage followed by a free agent period. Good players will be paid, bad players go away and veterans get all the extra benjamins. There's something wrong with a system that puts the biggest contract at a certain position in the hands of a kid who has never played a down in the NFL. This has to happen to make any sense about contracts. The following one makes sense with no more NFLE if they don't come up with something else: 10. Is it time for teams to carry 100 players until Aug.? With NFL Europa gone for good, the offseason programs and the preseason is the only training ground for players. One GM suggested to me that it may be time to let clubs have closer to 100 players on the roster for the offseason so coaches could work with them and develop their own players. It's not a bad idea that your core veteran stars don't report until April for the offseason but that the other larger group works through February and March to improve on their skills. They should change something to help develope players.
