      <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
      <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

        Look at the way the question was asked, of course he'll say that, it's not like he just came out with it on his own, I'd expect most backs of his caliber to say the same thing even though he knows he won't get that type of money.

          Why wouldn't he say he should be the highest paid? He's got every right to demand a lot of money. If the Jags wont pay him, someone else eventually will.

            I don't see how he could respond any differently, to be honest. 'No, i shouldn't be'
            Next question: 'How come?'
            Does he talk about any of his shortcomings? About how great the other players in the league are? Nothing he says is going to get him more money going down this stream. You say yes, show that you think you are the best, and continue to produce on the field that makes someone pay you the big bucks.

            Do i think he should be? No. I doubt he does either, but he can't really say anything otherwise.
            Classic garbage question by a reporter. The forced response leads to something like this.....which is nothing...

                The second contract for a running back is pretty much his last best chance to make a lot of money. He'll be close to 30 by the end of it and it's tough to get a team interested in paying you when you hit the big three zero as a running back. He's just politicking. He's getting something like $325,000 which is nothing to cough at, but not enough to live off considering he could get injured and not really have any marketable skills just like that.

                  Until he is the NFL's clear cut number one back he shouldn't be the highest paid.

                    Doesn't really matter. The kid's still in a fast-food joint.

                      League doesn't work that way. NFL salaries go up every season, so it's not always necessarily the best player in the league who is highest paid, it is usually the most recently signed elite QB. So say MJD becomes a FA in 2010, and there are no other elite running backs who become free agents in the previous 2 years, it is highly likely he would become the highest paid RB in the leauge. And I think that might actually be the scenario. Michael Turner is elite now, but he wasn't viewed as so when he signed his contract. AP would become a FA the next season I believe which would then make MJD's run as the highest paid RB short lived.

                        Exactly, Ben Roethlisberger was the highest paid player right now, followed by Jared Allen, Larry Fitzgerald, and...wait for it...JaMarcus Russell. Michael Turner was the highest paid running back and Tommy Kelly was the highest paid defensive tackle. Are any of them top at their position? You could make an argument for Fitzgerald and maybe Allen I suppose, but it's all about going on the market at the right time with the right circumstances.

                          He may not even deserve it anymore becuase of his age, but MJD? I think this is a case of a little thing called Cockiness....
                          There's this guy that plays running back for the Vikings his name is Adrian Peterson you may have heard about him.

                              Personally I don't even think MJD is an elite back. So far his yards per carry have gone down every year with more and more carries. If he ever does have to carry the load with like 275 carries per season I think he will be lucky to break 4 yards per carry. I like him a change of pace/split workload/spot starter but from what I have seen he doesn't have what it takes to be a workhorse.

                                Except for Adrian Peterson. :D
