Think there will be a rookie cap next off season?

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

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

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.

From Andrew Brandt.
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.
