So far players leaving early that leave me scratching my head:
Jeff Tuel, QB
Kniles Davis, RB
Joe Kruger, DE
William Gholston, DE
Mike Edwards, CB
Sometimes, it is economic. One of the early entrants, I do not remember who but , has two kids and a wife to support.
He might get picked on the third day and get a minimum contract.
But, the minimum wage in the NFL is good money in the real world.
Rookies receive "minimum salaries under the CBA."
In 2013, that will be about $480,000 in salary; in 2014, $570,000.
The minimum weekly salary for a player on the practice squad is $5,700. That is nearly $97,000 for a full, 17-week season
