    Since you guys seemed to enjoy the last one...

    KO is up to $41 and headed to $63 if he makes it the next two years.

    A lot of reports of him wowing a lot of people during practice.Sounds like hes tearing it up. Can't wait to see what he can do behind a capable OL, which, he never had during his college career.

    Would you expect anything else? The selfish part of me is giddy that I was right all along about David. An even bigger part of me is ecstatic because David deserves this.

    Yeah, but wasn't he raised by women?

    Seems like kind of an odd sentence:

    "Although Montgomery had only 71 receptions for 582 yards and no touchdowns in three college seasons, the Bears have liked what they have seen out of Montgomery as a receiver."

    Why is there an "only" and an "although" in that sentence? That seems like quite a few receptions to me for a RB in "only" 3 years.

    That's 24 receptions per season, or two per game at about eight yards a pop. ISU just never used him much as a receiver beyond screens and as an outlet.

    Which I contend is a lot for a RB in college.

    Sounds like the potential is there for a good chunk of offense to run through Montgomery, if Nagy learned much from Andy Reid in their time together, a RB with good hands on the receiving end will get the ball a lot.

    That might be more than all of our TE’s combined over that period.

    Since it's all signing bonus and non-guaranteed money then a shorter contract would be better. You get to that real payday a lot faster.

    Considering that the NFL has the highest revenue of any professional sports league, and the risk these guys are taking with their bodies (and minds), it seems like they really don't get paid enough.

    Only the first rounders get real money until year 5.

    Very common to participate in mini camps without a rookie contract. CBA doesn't allow to practice at training camp without a contract though.
