baltimore-ravens-2013-draft-600x400

With the advent of the new rookie wage scale contained in the NFL’s 2011 CBA, much of the mystery of rookie contracts has been removed. With the new system largely being a slotted system, signings are happening much quicker and holdouts are few and far between.

Also, with the overall league Salary Cap having increased at such a minimal rate, players are receiving the same Signing Bonus as the player taken with the same pick in the prior year’s draft.
