I really hope that when the NFL comes up with a new bargaining agreement they make a restriction on how much rookies can make. The NBA does it and it makes a lot more sense than constantly making unproven rookies have some of the highest salaries in the league.

Why?  :doze:

6 years 60 mil, 26 mil guaranteed.

WE'RE HEADED INTO A NEW PHASE BOSS. ONE THAT'S GOING TO HAVE SOME BAD AFTER EFFECTS. BUT IF THE OWNERS ARE WILLING TO GIVE IT UP .... I DON'T BLAME ANY PLAYER FOR TAKING IT. BUT IT WON'T BE LONG BEFORE YOU HEAR THE OWNERS SAYING, "SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE TO STOP THIS." WHAT MAKES IT SO CRAZY IS ...... THEY STARTED IT IN THE FIRST PLACE.:)

Actually they didn't start it.  The original agreement used a percentage of the profit to come up with the salary cap and the rookie pool.  Every year that percentage increased just a little bit and the profits increased a lot because of the TV network contracts that boomed.  That's why it got completely out of hand.  The owners are contractually obligated by the current agreement to use an amount of money within a range.  Most of that money goes to the top.

For a RB??? Wow...

That's too much for a RB...they're average life expectancy in the NFL is less than 5 years...they are a dime a dozen

It's market rate for the #4 pick.

I thought they would end up paying because of the Ryan deal. 

You can't think we got a good deal with Ryan and then turn around and say the Raiders got robbed.

We both did.

Running back Darren McFadden reached a six-year, $60 million agreement Thursday night with the Oakland Raiders that includes $26 million guaranteed.

Darren McFadden's contract includes $26 million in guarantees.

McFadden is the third of the top four draft choices to reach a deal. Offensive lineman Jake Long, of the Miami Dolphins, and quarterback Matt Ryan, of the Falcons, the third pick in the draft, have signed. McFadden, the fourth pick, reached an agreement after negotiating during the Raiders' minicamp.

McFadden's agent, Ian Greengross, flew to Oakland to start negotiations with the Raiders. Both sides wanted to get a deal done quickly.

The tricky part was getting enough guaranteed money to compete with Long and Ryan's deals. Ryan received more than $34 million in guarantees on his six-year, $72 million contract. But Ryan reached the agreement the day the NFL voided the final two years of the collective bargaining agreement. Negotiations for draft choices since have become more complicated because of the possibility of having an uncapped year in 2010.

Greengross and the Raiders were able to work through the red tape and come up with a six-year contract that maximized guarantees. Many analysts of the rules involving the uncapped year predicted more five-year contracts that included less overall and guaranteed money.

McFadden is expected to share the running back position with Justin Fargas. The team scheduled an 11 p.m. Friday news conference to announce the signing. He becomes the 21st of the 252 league draft choices to reach an agreement.
