    Hope Denver drafts Mayfield. I honestly think he is a bust. I know people are high on him; the games I watched it looked like he was playing against air.

    People can (rightfully) mock Orlando Brown's combine performance, but the dude gave up zero sacks last year protecting Mayfield.

    Maybe he will become the next Brees; I look at him as an excellent college QB that will struggle in the NFL because of his size/subpar athleticism and a lot closer to Chase Daniel...a rich man's Chase Daniel.

    Thats not even touching his Jim McMahon persona. Lol

    Damn even nepotism has infiltrated the NFL referee system. One Hochuli retires, and another takes his place.

    If I signed with a company and it was in the contract that they could add a year to the contract by paying me 20% more, I certainly would. Nobody is forced to play in the NFL. Bell could have gone elsewhere to play football or do something else but nothing that would have paid as much as the 4 million he got in his rookie deal. Every player knows what the CBA contract is. He couldn't make the $16 million he has so far plus the $14.5 million he will make if he signs the tender doing anything else. He can refuse to sign and sit out a year. Maybe he gets a big enough contract to cover losing $14.5 million by not playing this year.

    I turned down 3 times the money to stay at a job, partly out of loyalty to the owner who hired me when I needed a job and treated me very well. The other part was I would have had to leave the country at a time when my parents were having some medical issues. I would have loved to play in the NFL but I had a knee injury that prevented it. It didn't pay very much back then but I loved the game.

    If I was 26 and had half of the $16 million that he's made from the NFL salaries, I would just retire if I thought I wasn't being treated fairly. Most people won't make that in a lifetime. Why take the risk of brain damage?

    They should play baseball then. Less chance of serious injury. Of course there are half as many MLB players and they play 10 times as many games.

    there is no comparison between the nfl and real world jobs.

    The franchise tag needs to go away though. A team tags you and you have zero choice but to sign or sit.

    One franchise tag should be the limit

    Skeetz, you also said he shrunk against Georgia when it was clearly the awful play calling in OT. I think someone like Mayfield threatens your "aw shucks" midwestern sensibilities so badly that all you can do is look for ways to descredit him.

    In short,
