Post 1st round pick signing problems...
I keep reading how 1st round picks are slow to sign this year. Well, let's think this through. Last year, the Lions had Stafford signed on draft day. As a result the salary scale was set immediately and no-one but SF had problems getting their guys signed.

This year, the Rams opted to not sign Bradford on draft day. As a result, he is still unsigned and despite reports that he and the Rams are close to an agreement, it could drag on indefinitely. And as a further result, the salary scale has not been set. So, no-one else can get their guys signed.

Way to go Rams :!: Your ineptitude is affecting the entire league. At least the Lions got something right after the 0-16 season.

The NFL should have long ago adopted a policy of having the #1 overall pick signed before he is actually selected or the pick would move to the next guy on the list that will sign.

Oakland thought they wouldn't have a problem getting J. Russell signed. They were wrong.

Miami was smart and had 3 guys battle it out to see who would sign for the best deal for Miami. Result: Pick signed before he was picked.

Detroit somewhat followed Miami's example. Result: Pick signed within minutes of being picked.

So here comes the bumbling, stumbling Rams. Who apparently learned nothing from the Jamarcus Russell ordeal in Oakland. Hope you enjoy your $50M bust St. Louis. Where's that big rubber stamp that says DUMB@$$ :!:

Wonder if the cloud of questions revolving around next years bargaining agreement is making things difficult?

Agents know that this is the last year they'll be able to rape teams for the big bucks, so they're trying to get as much as they can.

bingo Sly.

Although, it's nowhere near as bad as baseball. At least with revenue sharing, the LA, NY, and Chi teams don't own the league. On any given year, anyone can win.

Draft defense - CB, LB, DT, LB...WR/KR
