If there's no rookie cap, It's pretty much a 100% chance that Luck comes out, right?

Who would pass up a record breaking contract for an extra year in college? :confused:

I think that both players and owners agree that there needs to be some sort of rookie wage scale

rookie cap won't make a difference on him coming out. threat of injury or slipping in the rankings will hurt him more than cap or no cap.

he doesn't have anything to gain by staying if a rookie cap is in place.

What I am curious about is what happens if it is mid-summer or even mid-season that a CBA is reached? Assuming a Rookie cap is in place would the draft picks of the 11' draft be paid based on it or would it start for the 12' draft? I love Luck and all but can you imagine the contract he would demand right now.

From Andrew Brandt.

Will rookies get paid less with the new CBA? --Bill R.

Yes, certainly at the top of the Draft. Sam Bradford was the last bonus baby in the history of top picks in the NFL. Bradford can max out at about $78 million. The next top draft pick in the NFL will probably max out at about $20-25 million.

That sucks for the rookies but I also think 1st round picks contracts will only be 4 (or was it 3 cant remember) years. So if they actually live up to the hype it will only take a couple of years till when they'll able to renegotiate. Now I think more teams will be willing to gamble on big time talent that they wouldn't in years past because if they bust it wouldn't cripple the team for 3 or 4 years. Also trades into the top 5 will be far more prevalent.
