    Question on NFL contracts.

    We all know NFL contracts are not guaranteed and they give out a lot of bonus money.

    Would guaranteeing (sp) contracts be better for every one???
    Creating a structure where
    An injured player gets all his money that year and if he is out forever a prorated amout the rest of the contract.
    A player can be cut but still will get a prorated portion based upon when he gets cut
    Seems it would cut down on these silly signing bonuses to get around current cap or other stuff.

    Well I really like the idea of injuried players being able to be paid out their contracts and not having it count towards the cap but, I like cutting players who don't live up to their contracts. Having to play for your contract keeps you hungry and makes a better player, unlike some of these baseball players.

    Re: Question on NFL contracts.

    NFL contracts are almost "non-contracts". They violate all principles of rational sense since the giver of the contract can rescind it with minimal penalty. I prefer a straight up situation where the everyone lives up to the deal including paying non-performing and injured players for the life of the deal. This will ineveitably lower wages as owners will think more before offering a deal they do not intend to follow up on.

    The first problem with that type of deal is how do you motivate a player with a guaranteed contract? It just does make sense on any level to keep paying non-performing players.

    Injured players are already compensated throughout the life of the deal. Here's a good article that goes into this stuff;

    Thanx for the article uncleanlife. I wwas hoping that was the case. Would hate to see an injuried player not paid.
