Default How do we sign all of our Rookies ?

So how do we sign all of our Rookies ?? I think Von Miller will take up a good chunk of this.


ESPN's John Clayton is reporting that after adjusting to the new rookie pay-scale system, Denver has a $8,118,404 rookie pay pool. Meaning they have to sign their nine drafted rookies using up to that much allotted money.

That makes sense, the 8mil is just what counts this year and then 44mil is the total of rookie contracts over how ever many years

I thought it was 4 years with the 5th being the option? Not Aaron Francisco money but I would take it.

It will be 4 years with an option for a 5th year. The 5th year salary is dependent on league wide salaries for his position in that 5th year.

EDIT: I posted this in another thread but it is pertinent here also.
The article of the CBA for rookie compensation can be found here:

You right the 5yh year he would get top ten money i believe. Which before Suh played a down last year he was already making that money bracket. Of course watching play he deserves it, but top ten draft picks can be a crap shoot. I am very pleased that the only time we'll ever drafted that low we got this break in price.

We have plenty of money. You guys are killing me. And getting rid of Orton will free up another 8.8 million. Even if we can't find a trading partner for him, the guy isn't going to stay on our payroll at that number.
