    I'm so so glad we selected him. I think Watt is going to be a fan favorite on this team for a LONG time.

    I love hearing him say he's been in contact with 30-35 of our players, and he mentioned them going over the playbook. Nothing can replace running the plays with coaches and players on the field... but studying the schemes and language used is huge.

    Let's just hope the EPA doesn't regulate his output.

    He really needs to get down here ASAP to adjust to this heat and humidity. He needs to be here and live in this climate before workouts begin.

    I wonder if the NCAA will allow the draftees to return to their college team if not a senior. They could play "game ball" & NFL would retain their rights. Colleges could purchase health insurance to protect NFL until CBA resolved. Snicker.

    Has he gotten paid yet? Does he have insurance if het gets seriously hurt training with teammates?

    I think there are other factors at play.

    Can't go back and play if you've hired an agent. I would assume that credit card companies tend to understand the situation of these soon-to-be millionaires and they are already living like kings.

    I'm a licensed insurance agent for the state of Wisconsin. Right now they are getting some Texas weather. 95-100 degrees. It's close.

    I don't think your right about this. From what I remember hearing from John Mclain on 610 that some players have taken loans out from agents at a 30% interest rate because the credit companies don't care about them not getting any money now due to the lockout.

    Here is a article about NFL players taking high risk loans from banks at 18%-24%.

    http://miami.cbslocal.com/2011/04/13/report-nfl-players-taking-risky-loans/

    "According to a report from Yahoo!’s thepostgame.com, players from at least 16 teams, including the Miami Dolphins, have sought out “aggressive short-term loans with high interest rates.” The interest ranges from 18 to 24 percent and if defaulted on, can jump to as high as 36 percent."

    "As the NFL work stoppage continues with no end in sight, some cash-strapped players are taking out high-risk, high-interest loans to get them through the lean times - some as big as $250,000 with interest rates as high as 30 percent."


    "Over the past six weeks or so, according to Yorker, he’s issued 25 NFL players loans, ranging from $30,000 to $250,000. Last year at this time, he’d made just three loans. Of the current batch, 10 went to veterans and 15 to rookies. The demand from just-drafted prospects left out in the cold by the lockout has been “off the charts,” he said."

    That's a he'll of an interest rate.

    It probably would not be smart of them to start living in the city they were drafted to just yet. They don't know how long this is going to last. And a lot them probably didn't get house buying money.
