Rookie Contract Details

Kudos to our own Brian McIntyre over at The Other 31 for being the first to report on the contract details for the three recently signed rookies.

From McIntyre's post:

According to a league source, the three Green Bay Packers who signed on Wednesday received four-year deals with base salaries at the league minimum in each year. ($320,000 in 2010, $405,000 in 2011, $490,000 in 2012, and $575,000 in 2013)

Fifth-round offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse received a signing bonus of $149,850, bringing the base value of his contract to $1.939 million dollars. Sixth-round running back James Starks received a $100,300 signing bonus, pushing the total value of his contract to $1.89 million dollars. Seventh-round defensive end C.J. Wilson’s signing bonus was $50,354, making his four-year pact worth $1.84 million dollars.

Nice work Brian. Still looking for odds on Bulagas' training camp 'reporting' date. I'll set the O/U at August 17th... Thoughts?

"you don’t need to start your day"... Or end your night; for poor Shmucks like me. 8-(

Ahhh, not much longer though, then back to normal.

I think this was the first time I didn't see "GBP 4 LIFE" in one of your posts!

Although I do like this tag better!

Fitz, I thought that you might appreciate this. Another classic from the Onion:

Vikings Not Going To Tinker With Way Adrian Peterson Fumbles Ball

MINNEAPOLIS—In an effort to preserve the running back's aggressive fumbling style, Vikings coach Brad Childress announced Monday that the training staff would not attempt to alter Adrian Peterson's two-point technique for loosely carrying the football. "When you have a great natural fumbler like Adrian Peterson, you don't want to mess with that," Childress said. "That's just raw talent right there. Nobody can expose the ball exactly the way he does. You can't teach that." Peterson has reportedly spent the off-season working with NFL veterans Warren Moon and Dave Krieg to improve his dropping mechanics.

Kid, that's excellent. For sure keep me in mind when you run across gems like that. I appreciate it.
