View Full Version : How do 2nd round draft pick rookie scale contracts work?

Sorry I'm just not too clear about this but i know 1st rounders are 2 years guaranteed and 2 team options then they're restricted

is the 2nd rounders only 2 years and that's all ?

so there's no option for teams to match them ? it kind of seems pretty unfair.....

2nd rounders can actually sometimes get better contracts than some 1st so its sometimes better like
dejuan blair fell to the 2nd round but he got a pretty good contract because he wasnt restricted by 1st round rookie salary caps
