I like the idea, although I think it should be a bit more declared so to speak...like first rounders all get 4-6 year contracts, all heavily incentive based, that will guarantee them like 2 million...
2nd rounders 4-6 year contracts guaranteed 1 million
3rd rounders 4-6 year contracts guaranteed 750K
4th rounders, 3-5 year contracts guaranteed 500k
5th rounders, 3-5 year contracts guaranteed 250k
6th rounders, 3-5 year contracts guaranteed 200k
7th rounders, 3-5 year contracts guaranteed 150k
as much as Id like to just have em all play for no more than half a mill guaranteed, I just dont see that going down with the NFL Players Union...truth be told, idk how this will float their boat, but hey, I think it isnt that bad...think about it...a college student whose worked his ass off for 3-4 years to prove himself to be a 1st round product, well we will reward you for the hard work you did in college, guarantee you 2 MILLION dollars, more than you've probably ever seen in your life (unless your dad is Joe Montana)...and it goes down from there...I think Players Union would find this suitable as would the owners and rest of the NFL as well as its fans...
