The new collective bargaining agreement will address the issue of escalating rookie salaries. This is probably the last draft class where you will see outrageous money paid to high draft picks. The NFL will probably adopt something similar to the NBA's slotted rookie pay scale. The NFL veterans will be willing to concede this point in negotiations with the owners.
