    There was one guy who kept blabbing on about that there is no way we can sign him on a rookie wage scale because he was drafted under the old CBA. But he worked for a law firm.

    I personally am not a huge fan of the cap. It is wrong to limit what a person should make. Sorry I have no problem with these 70mil rookie contract. if an owner is stupid enough to pay it I don't want to hear them whining about it when the player flames. I one positive thing about it is that it will end holdouts. But imo they would have been better doing what baseball does. Sign by this day or you are done til next season. Make every rookie sign before July31,or sit the season.......But whatever...I am wondering if through the cba the RFA is gone

    This is great. Not only does it limit their ridiculous salary, it prevents those annoying rookie holdouts from happening.

A rookie wage scale is long overdue in my opinion and will help to benefit clubs in the long run by allowing them to adequately pay vets who deserve it and possibly help teams to manage the teams budgets in regards to the salary cap.
    Well, they still will be making far more than established veterans but I agree this is long overdue and much better than it has been. The contracts for high draft picks over the past 10 years have been INSANE, especially top 10 guys, many of whom turn out to be busts and hurt their teams for years.

    This means teams will actually trade picks in the top of the 1st now, no doubt about it. It will be far easier for teams to trade back etc, because there is no longer the crippling fear of the player being a bust, and being on the hook for 40+ million.

    Will make the draft far more interesting IMO.

    Yeah I love the rookie wage scale, it was long overdue! However the first 4 years are cheap its picking up the 5th year thats adds a lot to a contract. In that 5th year your paying an average of the top 10 salaries at thats players position. So in years 1-4 you hand out $20M and in year 5 your looking to hand out between most likely $6M - $11M potentially turning it into a 5 year $31M contract & STILL thats an amazing contract compared to what top overall picks were making. Plus it makes it SOOO much easier and basically gives you a blueprint to resign a teams young players. Teams and player agents will now be starting contract talks from 10 yards away instead of from endzone to endzone!

    Although, I'll be interested to see if they have any additional ways to get big incentives outside of having the team pick up the option for the 5th year.

    Also, does anyone know the changes to franchise and transition tags? I still hope there's a way to retain your best players. (More difficult in down times.)
    From what I heard, teams will still be able to use the F-Tags, but they're trying to come to an agreement where a player can't be Franchised more than one year.

    Re-read the bolded part- ".. as low as..". Could be more. But, however you cut it, rookie wage scale is LONG past due.

    Very few proven players get a contract like Bradford's. It's been a long time coming, but a decent affordable rookie wage scale looks to be in place.

    I'm impressed the rookie wage scale is a lot more reasonable in the new CBA. A lot less crippling for franchises picking in the Top 10 and opens up more trades. It's also reasonable for the players because franchises can accept an option in the 3rd year for the 5th year, so that if they boom, they'll get paid by the average of the top 10 salaries for their position and also cuts out the 6th year, so that they could get paid faster. It opens up a lot more room for free agents and extensions for veterans and makes teams more competitive. I love it!

    Step 2: Sign their nine draft picks. No new Bronco figures to lose more in the new CBA than Von Miller. Last year, Ndamukong Suh, the No. 2 overall pick of the Detroit Lions, received a five-year, $60 million deal that included $40 million in guaranteed money. The rookie wage scale proposal could leave Miller with a four-year deal worth as low as $20 million. The guarantee might be as low as $10 million.
