Default Re: Did 1st/2nd rnd picks miss TC?

Paul Kuharskey makes an appropriate point that the term "holdout" gets tossed around a bit too much.

I tend to agree with him. I wish there was a way to differentiate between hammering out the details and "standing with arms crossed" sort of things.

Alan Burge mentions that Barwin is pretty much lined to based on the activity around him.

If Crabtree gets top 3 money at No. 10, then the picks around him _ Moreno was selected at No. 12 overall _ would negotiate their contracts accordingly."


If Crabtree is really the one holding all of the other 1st rounders hostage than that's really messed up. This whole rookie wage scale is messed up.

That's it. I mean, this is proof that there needs to be mandatory salary tiers for the rookies.

Tier 1: Top 10 picks have a graduated scale for Pick 1, a bit less for Pick 2, etc., until you reach pick 10.

Tier 2: Picks 11-15 have a drop-off in the salary scale, but still get a fairly high salary as opposed to picks 16-end-of-the 1st round because they were almost a Top 10 pick.

Tier 3: Picks 16-to-the-end of the 1st round. If you didn't go in the top 15, then you get a lower salary. You'll make more than a 2nd rounder, but not as much as a Top 10 pick and just slightly lower than picks 11-15.

Tier 4: All 2nd rounders.

Tiers 5-9: Every subsequent round has its own tier

Is there any reason this wouldn't work? Seems easy enough to me.

No, that just makes too much sense.

I have to side with Eric Winston in this area. It's the owners who can't control their spending. They set the market.
