    Not as long as the PA has their say in the matter.

    Why would the PA have something to say?

    And I agree 1000% as well, and I have for at least a few years.

    I thought it was a travesty to have Vernon Davis sign his rookie contract and be the highest paid TE in the league.

    Yeah, I said it a few months back in another thread, a rookie pay scale would be great. You've got rookies who have never played a down in this league getting paid way more than guys who have proven that they can play in the NFL for years.

    Why wouldn't the Players Association want proven players to get paid more in place of unproven rookies? It benefits the players, in the long run. The players who can play and stay.

    I've had this thought ever since I heard the NBA does it this way and I really cannot see how anyone could be against it.

    It just makes perfect sense. Don't overpay for unproven players, be rid of holdouts.

    While I overall agree that the NBA's system is much better than the NFL's, one must also take into account how that changes a team's drafting strategy. With less risk involved in a pick, teams are more likely to take chances on guys with character concerns early, which happens to be a major sticking point for a dear commissioner.

    Haha i actually talked to my cousin and uncle about this. I said they should have a pay scale and a million should be what every first rounder gets and if they produce the first year they can hold out the second year for more, or the team can pay more. There have been alot of busts.
