Default 2009 Rookie Pool Numbers Released

And the Texans are in the middle of the pile.:


2009 Rookie Pool Numbers Are Released


Quote:
Though the NFL doesn’t yet have a rookie wage scale, the league has used for more than 15 years a rookie salary pool.

Each year, the 32 teams are assigned a maximum cap value that may be devoted to all of a given team’s draft picks. The amount is determined based upon the number of draft picks, the rounds in which they are used, and the specific place in each round a selection was made.

This year’s team-by-team rookie pool numbers are right here [See below].

The Lions have the most, at $8.074 million, due to having two first-round picks — one of which was the first overall.

The Saints, who had only three draft picks, have the least, at $2.8 million.

The rookie pool applies only to the first year of the players’ contracts, but separate rules limit future growth to 25 percent of the first-year salary, excluding signing bonus allocation. As a result, many first-round picks don’t receive signing bonuses, and the guaranteed money is achieved by guaranteeing most of the base salaries under the deal.
