    But I love the draft! I just hope we can get some sort of order down to stop the top few draft picks from earning an insane amount of money- even when compared to perennial pro bowl players... It would also allow teams at the top to have an easier chance to trade down and rebuild their team.

    i was very anti opt-out in '06 or whenever but now im not TOO concerned because something has to be done if the salary cap is too high (like its been going the last few yrs) its practically useless anyway and the rookie contracts have become stupid...

    A 2011 strike could stop the Texans from winning a Super Bowl..........................................................hey, just sayin'.

    Otherwise, I agree. The rookie salaries are out of control.
