    Raiders move fast sign #5 overall pick Mack

    Thats gotta be a record

    As @FieldYates said, the Raiders signed Khalil Mack to a standard 4-year deal, with a fifth-year option

    Bears signed like their whole class the other day. The new CBA renders this totally normal now.

    No. The bears have already signed their whole draft. With the new CBA they are pretty much slotted their pay

    Fully agree... Don't care that it may have screwed the players, this makes it ok for me.

    And the record I think goes to some of the first overalls from 10 or so years back. A lot of times they would get signed to a deal before the draft even as that team had the #1 and could start working on it.

    It happened to Mario Williams I believe. Signed the night before the draft when everyone thought Reggie Bush would go #1.

    I really like what the Raiders did in the draft, hopefully it's a step towards to respectability

    The record was when the Texans signed Mario Williams BEFORE the draft started.

    I don't even think this should be an issue. Every single slot should be completely worked out to where all the player has to do is sign the contract.... The length and gauarantees and amounts should already be figured out for every slot.

    I think this has been great for the league. Now you don't have guys coming into the league getting top 10 player money for being a high pick and taking it for granted.... If you are a high pick you still gotta put in the work to earn that big contract.

    It was an absolute joke that we had guys coming into the league getting $60-70 million based on what they done in college....

    Omg this times a million. It's a slap in the face to the veterans who never see that kind of money. The Sam Bradford deal is the one that sticks out the most. Love the new CBA and slotted pay. Get the rookies signed before camp and let the focus on football.

    I seriously think he had a lot to do with the pay scale. I'm sure when the pro rookie pay scale side was making their argument, all they had to do was show a picture of fatboy. There's seriously no rebuttal to that.

    This, I remember back in 2010 after the Chiefs had drafted Eric Berry and signed him to the largest contract ever signed by a safety (realize Jairus Byrd was just a second year player, and Earl Thomas was a fellow rookie). This deal put him ahead of guys like Ed Reed, and Troy Polamalu. Of course the deal has worked out so far, but it was getting ridiculous what some of those guys were getting paid right out of college. Though, I do feel bad for guys like Jake Locker, Von Miller, and Mike Pouncey. All of them could have been 1st round picks in 2010, but returned to school only to lose tons of cash because of the new CBA. Actually, I feel bad for all the upper classmen in the 2011 Draft.
