What a sad saga this is....
He should be paid exactly what the first receiver got - the guy at the Raiders. Crabtree’s better, and is suffering from Al Davis’s need for draft day attention.
I have him on my fantasy team. Please trade him to the Jets. I need a really good active receiver.
I’ve long said rookies should be offered a set amount for first year - maybe 250K - for one year - see what they do and then neogtiate after that year. Most of these kids comeout of college where, with the exception of the noted under the table money/deal offered by some schools, most have lived on pennies and suddenly are handed millions. Drugs, women, bad decisions - give them a decent amount to live on and see if they can really make the transition to the big leagues..... I’m disappointed by Micheal - I think he’s being greedy and also getting bad advice. Just shut up and play the damn game!
