football is rough. It doesn't have guaranteed contracts really. It doesn't have the checks and balances that other sports do. A draft pick in the
NFL understands that. That's why signing bonuses are so big. They have to get what they can then perofrm in such a way to get better cash.
Brady Quinn's situation is interestend b/c he didn't get drafter where projected. He feels like he should have gone highner, and maybe so, but the
marked it set on where you are drafted, not what you were projected as. Contracts can always be re-negotiated based on performance. HE just neeeds to
get in camp and signed. He's in a good situation too, b/c the Browns haven't had a QB since Kosar, and if he is that good, it shouldn't be an
issue. I don't know his financial standing, but I don't see it being bad enough that he has to hold out to get better cash.
Kind of a similar situation with Leinart last year...
