More money eventually, but not right now. His contract was 5 years for around 7.5 million. If he is drafted in the first round in football he'll make more money right away.

By signing the deal, wouldn't he be forfeiting his NCAA eligibilty?

No, because baseball and football are separate sports. He just can't sign any endorsment deals.

Is he called the shark because his head is big?

Well, I don't know how good he is at baseball, but he isn't even a top 4 WR this year and he will only be a number 2 or 3 guy so I'd say baseball.

yes, and Chad Hutchinson. Seems like these things never really work out though, unless you're Bo Jackson.

Don't forget about Quincy Carter, Brian Jordan and Deion Sanders.

Ha, are you serious? Jeff is a first round talent if he can have the kind of season like he did last year, therefore a big paycheck would be awaiting him.

nah, he's not a power pitcher like those that you are referring to. He maxes out in the upper 80's according to scouting reports.

Football. His baseball contract is just insurance to make sure that he is getting paid what he feels he is worth. If he gets selected lower than the 1st in the NFL draft he probably would earn more money playing baseball.

It's ok. He'd end up being raped on his way to his car as Wrigley is near boys town.

I dont get that at all. Jarrett is getting harrased because he lived in an apartment with Leinart. Drew Tate isnt allowed to accept 25,000 dollars for making a hole in one in a celebrity golf tournament. Drew Henson once he signed his Yankees deal was done for Michigan. So how come horse face can sign a 7 million dollar contract and still be an amateur athlete?

I'm not really sure about those, but there have been a bunch of guys who go to the minors and come back and play college ball.

Kay Jay Harris from West Virginia also played some minor league ball, drafted outta high school. That's why he was like 26 coming out. I don't know how he can remain eligible.

I don't think there is a certain age limit. Wasn't weinke like 26 when he won the heisman? If they enroll into college they are eligible for 4 seasons of being on the roster, of course being redshirted give you an extra year.
