Is it normal to already have all draft picks signed by now?  Aren't there usually still unsigned players at this point?

 

This seems like a good sign.

With the new CBA it became a lot easier to get rookie deals done.  Everyone is pretty much slotted in terms of how much they make.  Unless you do something strange with contract language like the Chargers and Bosa got into last year signing rookies now is almost a formality so it's just pretty much when the team gets around to it before camp.

Last year, the Falcons had their entire draft class signed within a week. It seems to get easier every year. The precedents for any tricky issues have mostly been set.

We should be thanking him.  Ballard saw his thread and had no choice but to sign Basham right then and there.

 

:sarcasm:  haha

    •     Part of me wishes my Mom had the same attitude as you.  I wanted to play so bad, I just needed the support of my family, both morally and financially.  I wanted to be a DB, and I think I would have been pretty good.   But part of me knows I wouldn't be able to pursue my current pursuits in life, both emotionally and intellectually, if I had suffered multiple concussions before I had fully developed mentally.   This is a mucked up issue.  
    • If he wanted to, absolutely. 
    •   Unfortunately, No Fortunately, we of advanced age remember Cortez.  Even if we remember him unfondly.  Had he been a Colt, he would be remembered as a favorite.   I hate to sound my age, but the day will come where the only players we remember (and this is especially an Indy problem) are the Mannings and the Harrisons.   It is an especially Indy problem that we forget defensive greats like Bob Sanders and Dwight Freeney.  Such is the greatness of Cortez.  Only the people of the Grunge movement will truly appreciate his greatness.
    •   Didn't see this posted anywhere so I thought I would make it official here....   Former Seattle DT, Cortez Kennedy, a Hall of Fame player,  has died unexpectedly at age 48.   So far,   there are no reports of an illness like cancer,  or a suicide or foul play.     It's not known why he died.     I would expect authorities will do a full autopsy....   Here's your sad story.....   http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000810542/article/hall-of-famer-seahawks-great-cortez-kennedy-dead-at-48   Jeff Saturday spoke glowingly of Kennedy yesterday morning on ESPN,   and if you're too young to remember him,   think perhaps of Gerald McCoy of Tampa.    Strong, fast, quick,  relentless...   RIP Cortz Kennedy
    •     I think, for most people, at least anyone that played high school sports, the worst injury of their life probably came during that daring, inexplicable time.   I didn't play football, but I played just about every other sport that my parents were willing to pay for. (Football equipment was expensive back then, compared to other sports)  And I sacrificed my body for the team.   One coach, I won't say which one, wanted me to take performance-enhancing drugs to improve my abilities.  Sadly, I did, and it helped, but it led to the most devastating injury I have ever experienced.   I'm not taking the moral high-ground or justifying my athletic aspirations, but coaches, even at the high-school level, heck, even middle-school these days, are pushing their athletes to take short-cuts.   Bottom-line:  If you are a parent, and care about your kids' development, don't let them get too close to an ambitious coach.  Sometimes, winning is more important than the personal development of young folks.
