If the team opts for the 5th year of the deal, then Cam would get a contract worth about 50 million. Probably look about like 4 years for 28 - 34 million, then the last year would be top 10 salary guaranteed.


Pretty good for the team that he isn't the highest paid player in the league, which he would have been if the Rookie System didn't get put into place.

Necessary? Care to explain?


You want me to explain why the rookie wage scale is necessary? Isn't this well documented around the league?

Guys, nothing will stop or encourage future busts like Russell from entering the league.

This cap will have nothing to do with the talent in scouting departments and team philosophy.

All this does is take money from draftees.


Unproven rookie's do not deserve the type of money they receive toward the top of the draft. The vetern NFL players agree with this statement. It is necessary to fix this issue.

In return, the rookie's get a shorter contract so that they will be able to hit free agency sooner, and get their big payday quicker than before. The 'busts' will get less up front money, and will leave the league quicker. It helps the NFL teams recover from their bad decisions/draft picks, and reallocate that money to the players that deserve it. It's a win/win for both the players and the teams.

A rookie cap is in place for several reasons that are beneficial not only to the NFL but the sport of Football on the whole. From the contamination of the youth as early as PEE WEE level (who did not see that Bob Ley piece) to the runners in college and even HS who are all trying to establish a facade "relationship" that will lead to the big payday, to the lack of support and guidance that is expected from a manager/agent once that first big contract is inked, the benefits are too obvious to ignore.

This will not solve it, but its a step in the right direction.

If you don't see it, you're ignorance and lack of imagination is failing you again.
