Love it when the high draft picks sign quick. There's very little to squabble over with the rookie wage scale, basically just offset language and listen... if you liked a kid enough to draft him in the 1st round take your offset language and shove it up your ass. Just my take.

Agree.  From a player/locker room perspective I'm not sure what it does but from a fan perspective it sounds like they are just taking care of the mundane quickly so they can focus on the season.

Rookie pay scale is one of the best things the NFL has done in the past 20 years. I remember cringing when I saw the deals those rookie QBs were getting without ever playing a down.

You see his signing bonus?  Huge.

Wonder if we are starting to use the cap a little differently?

You are seeing what he is projected and slotted to get. It's just a little more than Waddle got at 6 last year.  Thee official numbers have not been released

It's crazy to think something seemingly relatively trivial like the Giants taking Thibodeaux at 5 and Neal at 7 instead of vice versa results in a guaranteed ~$5 million difference in paycheck.  I'd be pissed if I was Neal lol.

    • You need a more reliable source like a random guy who shares your political views on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube that “did his own research”
    • Still can't make perfect sense on this 3days later until it leads to either Gordon or Terry package trade.. If not this seem like another example of MJ being cheap AF..
    • You got to give them some slack. They thought they had their perfect coach in Atkinson and then they didn't. They obviously didn't want Mark Jackson and Jordan and Mitch oddly want to retain most if not all of the coaches. In their eyes they were jilted and embarrassed in public by this guy and the negative media afterwards. They turned to somebody they could trust, somebody that already wanted the job and wouldn't say no and has always been a coach that was good at making something out of nothing. I'm not mad here. The trust factor is already there. They really really know each other, Mitch has done waaaaay better than Cho. I would have gave Mark Jackson an interview but I understand why Jordan hired someone who would be more loyal. Unfinished business apparently. It is what it is now. Cliff doesn't shoot. I've already moved past it. You should too. If they sign Miles, Mitch has done well this off-season and this squad is automatically better defensively with 7'2" Williams and Kai coming into the lineup after killing the G League. Experience at coach is what we were missing, a young defensive big was what we were missing. Beelieve!
