Apparently BJ Raji will be coming into town tomorrow to sign his contract and get to work. Good. I had written a lengthy post that I failed to publish earlier in the weak about my problem with rookie contracts. I don’t like them. They are paid more than they are worth. Soon this will change because it will have to – it just doesn’t make sense to guarantee an untested rookie $34 million for example (Aaron Curry, #4 pick for Seattle). They should get something, but not the kind of money they’re getting. I read one great interview by Donald Brown, the Colts new lightening fast RB, who pretty much said that yes, rookie drafted high especially, get way too much money. I think he’s already signed.
