I doubt it. But he will probably be the one they get to work on first.

His contract really isn't negotiable so it's a matter of him just signing it and getting to work.

They just drafted him Thursday night, if they had signed him 24 hrs late... it still wouldn't be official until late Monday

Yeah, the sticking point was that RG3 wanted Kirk Cousins to be his chauffeur, but Shanny and Dan sorted all that for him!

In case you were wondering how it is going to work ...

NFL, NFLPA Finally Agree on Rookie Salary System
0 2 0Digg0StumbleBlogEmailShareNewsChris JohnsonNFL LockoutSam BradfordSt. Louis RamsTennessee Titans
Rookies will still get paid, just not on a Sam Bradford level
The final hurdle to NFL labor piece may have been cleared Thursday night.

ESPN reported that the league's owners and the NFL Players Association have reached a tentative agreement on a new rookie wage system, which has been said to be the final stumbling block toward a new collective bargaining agreement.

Contracts for first-round picks would be a fixed four years in length, with teams holding options for the fifth year. If the team chooses to exercise that option a year early, after the contract's third year, the fifth-year option salary is guaranteed to the player.

Each rookie would likely receive a standard slotted salary in the first four seasons, and then the option year's wage would depend on the player's draft slot.

The top 10 picks would receive a salary equal to the average of the top 10 salaries at their respective positions. Picks No. 11 through No. 32 would get the average of the Nos. 3 through 25 salaries at their positions.

As an example, let's use the NFL's current poster boy for outperforming the rookie contract, Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson.

Drafted No. 24 in 2008, Johnson would fall into that latter group. The average of running back base salaries No. 3 through 25 in 2009, according to the USA Today Salary Database, was $2,679,833, which would be a marked improvement from the near-league-minimum $385,000 Johnson pulled down that season. Undoubtedly, the Titans would have already exercised Johnson's option, guaranteeing him that money.

For point of comparison, the average of the top 10 running back salaries from that year would be $4,092,940.

Still unknown is the fate of cap maneuvers like option bonuses, which helped Rams QB Sam Bradford, last year's No. 1 draft pick, make an extra $18 million on his rookie contract, or whether first-round picks' contracts will be able to contain roster bonuses.

Signing bonuses aren't likely to go anywhere, and may still be allowed to be quite substantial. NFL rookies will not be able to cry poverty, but they won't be guaranteed $50 million the moment they first set foot in the team complex, either.

'reports' are that Luck will get $22M and RG3 $21M

given the stae of both franchises and the coaches and other players - RG3 is in for a huge bonanza after his first 3 years here
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

HAIL


Currently 50-41

That seems like they are saying that Luck, RGIII, and Tannehill would all be getting the same salary. That can't be right.

It's not right. That would be their fifth year salary if their team exercises their option to keep them. But only their fifth year salary would be the same, not the first four. Apparently the NFL from what I read just tells teams what their cap is and doesn't provide the actual formula.

You got anything more, Nik?

You got it right...

Still waiting to find out what that number is though, because of Capgate, the league hasn't come out with the rookie pool yet. It should have come out a week ago

This should be interesting. They can't set the cap until they know what the ruling is.... Well, they can... But it might causes issues.

That would mean teams can't sign draft picks. They should put figures out soon
