    ESPN: Goodell on rookie pay: 'There's something wrong'

    Here's an excerpt from the ESPN article:

    CHAUTAUQUA, N.Y. -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said it's "ridiculous" to reward untested rookies with lucrative contracts, and wants the issue addressed in contract talks."There's something wrong about the system," Goodell said Friday. "The money should go to people who perform."
    Goodell referred to Michigan tackle Jake Long's five-year, $57.75 million contract -- with $30 million guaranteed. Long was the first overall draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in April.
