    The fact that an unproven rookie's salary is being compared to proven qbs (Super Bowl winning qbs) is ridiculous. But you can't blame Ryan. It is what it is. Don't hate the player, hate the game.

    Rookie Contracts are stupid. What happens if this kid is Ryan Leaf 2.0? It is Atlanta thought. They had a RB play QB for 5 years so I guess they aren't all that smart to start with.

    These kind of contracts are what ruins the system for everyone. Ryan's agent just changed the market as the NFL knew it. Teams like Atlanta making this move, along with Washington's contracts with Randel El, etc. are really ruining it for the league.
