Rookie Salary System in place

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.

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.
