I really think the league needs to enforce some kind of timetable for signing top-5 picks. The Texans, whether you liked the selection or not, saved themselves a lot of trouble by coming to terms with Mario Williams before the draft.
Either punish the teams with forfeiture of picks in the next draft, or punish the players and agents with fines for failing to sign by the 2nd week of camp... or both.
Rookie salaries are out of control as it is, so maybe that will act as a deterrent to keep high picks from demanding an exorbitant amount of money.

Or hell, why not just set a non-negotiable pay scale for rookie deals, with contract length being the lone variable? With the salary cap in place, that should make things a lot more interesting vis-a-vis pre-draft dealing.


You are preaching to the choir on that subject, my friend.

I know this isn't going to happen but could they trade him without signing him?
