    My understanding is the days of fat rookie contracts are a thing of the past (courtesy of bust contracts like Sam Bradford’s). The NFL players association’s collective bargaining agreement with the nfl has prescribed value based on position, draft order etc for rookie contracts.

    Dunno man $55,178,850 seems pretty damn fat to me...
    Edit: The 32 mil may include the signing bonus. Either way that's pretty rich.

    The Browns have a history of poor first round picks, but not because the picks themselves were bad. It's like the old saw - put a cup of wine in a barrel of crap and you get a barrel of crap; put a cup of crap in a barrel of wine and you get a barrel of crap.
    I believe Mayfield is the real deal, but if they surround him with crap, he will look like crap.

    Rich to you and me for sure but not really in NFL terms, and not compared to Bradfords’s.

    I'm reading the Colts finally drafted some offensive linemen...that they have needed for years. Thats a good sign from this Colts fan. Protect that stud of a QB and maybe he will be able to do what he's paid to instead of running for his life and being the most sacked QB in the league.
