Default Bradford to get Record Deal?

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...with-bradford/

Quote:
"Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports that negotiations between the franchise that has won six games in three years and the agents for quarterback Sam Bradford began on Friday, and that the two sides are "expected to lay the groundwork for what will be the richest deal in NFL history."
$45-$50 million guaranteed.....honestly, it's absurd.

As far as I'm concerned, a rookie wage scale can't come soon enough. With any luck, this will be the last year for this kind of BS. No rookie in any sport should ever make more than any other player in the league is currently getting.

In fact, I'd say no rookie, even the #1 pick, should make any more than the average of the players at his position gets in a yearly salary, with a reasonable part of it guaranteed for injury.

Please tell me I'm not the only person who has a major problem with this? I mean...I knew Bradford was going to get a lot of money, but form him to be highest paid player in NFL history? Sam ************* Bradford? Seriously?

How did the NFL ever get to this point? I just read yesterday that the most a team is required to offer a draft pick is a 1 year deal at the rookie minimum (~$300,000.) How did that grow to this point? Anyone???

lack of balance in the negotiations. the team has all the importance in the world to not only get a deal done but to get a deal done soon whilst the player has little to no interest in a quick deal. in the long run getting on the field early is not of great interest cuz by the time a new contract comes around the player will have enough years under their belt anyway

I completely agree with you, this is destroying the league. I'm a big fan of Bradford, but seriously? Draft picks shouldn't earn this much, it's just ********. This just helps them to lose their mind with all the money they get.

I'm in favor of a slotted rookie salary. It'll stop this inflation, and prevent holdouts (unless someone wants to pull an Elway or Eli Manning).

But, I still think they should get very good money. Because believe it or not, high price rookie contracts help the veteran players. Since the vets will come with cheaper contracts, teams will be more willing to sign them in FA rather than drafting a rookie to fill the position. If the rookie contracts are cheaper than the vet contracts, then teams will always draft rookies instead of signing vets because they'll not only get a cheaper player but also a younger one.

So should Bradford be the richest player in history? Hell to the no. But he and all the rookies still need big enough contracts to keep the balance fair between young rookies and older vets. Although it needs to be stated that outside the Top 10 1st RD picks, the contracts aren't obscene at all.

I'll give you that to an extent.....but I just don't get how it was allowed to get this far. There was once a time when many teams didn't even keep their rookies on their team. I remember watching a show on NFLN a few years ago about the Redskins back in the 70s and out of something like 16 rookies drafted over 12 rounds, they didn't keep a single one of them out of camp.

I realize times have changed quite a bit, but how players who have never played a down started getting paid more..and more...and more...until they're now being the highest paid player in the league? It baffles me.

that's a lot of money for a guy who was hurt all last year. the rams are basically betting five years of their club's future that they got the pick right.

I think this is hilarious actually. 50 million dollars, and he could suck everytime he steps on the field, but for 50 million dollars he's set for life.

It's so true....once he puts pen to paper, he could throw a pick on every one of his pass attempts and be rich beyond most people's wildest dreams.

I also want a rookie scale, and fast. It's downright preposterous that a franchise is financially tied to a player who has not only not participated in any games, but in any significant team activity (be it practice, training camp, etc.) The point of the draft is to help struggling teams improve by allowing them to pick high, but struggling teams need cap room to sign free agents and improve.

The league should simply define how much a player earns depending on where they're drafted. Every single first overall pick gets the same deal, every second overall pick gets the same deal, and so on. That way, there are no stupid rookie holdouts, and there are virtually no obstacles when it comes to signing them.

Im pretty sure thats how the NBA does it. they set the scale and every year increase the pick so that way the pick makes a little more then last years, I guess for the economy reason or something.

Per wikipedia, I am wrong. The only thing for rookies is the 1st pick had to make more then the 2nd, and the 2nd more then the 3rd, etc.

That is outrageous. No rookie should get that much guaranteed. I don't think the whole contract should be that high, much less just the guaranteed portion.

Even the guaranteed money figures in a contract like that are misleading. Just like Russell, Ryan, and Stafford, Bradford's guaranteed figure is above and beyond what he'll actually get from that contract.

I agree it is ridiculous. No rookie should make that much money.

Next Pro Bowl QB to have his contract expire will get a bigger one. Next year's top pick will get a bigger one too if there's no scale. It's how the NFL works.

The pro bowl QB has at least done something to earn it. The rookie scale can't come soon enough imo.....I can't imagine another CBA being reached without one.

For those of you wondering when all this ridiculousness started, it was pretty much with Michael Vick. Peyton Manning and Tim Couch received $8 and $7 million per year, including 11.6 and 12.5 million bonus respectively.

Fast-forward two years, Michael Vick is getting over $10 million per year. Then it got even worse with Eli Manning. He got $9 million per year, but his guaranteed money doubled what Carson Palmer got the season before to 20 million.
