NFL, union at odds over rookie salaries

1

Labor strife isn't limited these days to New Jersey and the Christie administration. According to NFLPA head DeMaurice Smith, the conflict over escalating rookie salaries is one issue that increases the likelihood of a lockout next summer. That's all the more reason for an Anthony Davis to declare this year and get his name on a contract. It's easy to see the incentive for him, and for the NFL to make this a bone of contention in the talks. Two years ago, Leodis McKelvin signed a five-year, $19.4 million contract at #11 overall. That figure increased to a cool $25 mil last year for Aaron Maybin. This could be Anthony's last chance to cash in on the gravy train before a hard rookie cap goes in place.
