Hmm. The Texans are going without a General Manager for the 2019 season. The GM responsibilities will be split among existing personnel.

They gotta prove it still at the pro level. Earn it. Too much $$$ is not an incentive to achieve more. It's like capitalism, dude.

Totally agree. Perhaps a happy medium, though, could be incentives for pro bowl/ AP all pro seasons? If you give them the same pay scale as others, then for one, veterans don’t make as much, but secondly, the draft’s value would significantly decrease.

Also: remember that a good number of teams give their guys contract extensions before they’re needed in order to keep their star players happy.

Honestly rookies need upfront money and guarantees so they don't tear their acl and get thrown out in a dumpster.

Honestly I would just say pay me the minimum but buy me a two-bedroom house and pay for 100% of my medical expenses.
