Thanks for posting the link.
The most interesting thing from that read is the bigger picture. The veterans and owners wanted the rookie salary cap in place because first round picks were getting WAY to much money. I don't disagree and I get it look at Bradfords and JaMarcus contracts and they are a joke for unproven player.
What is really interesting is that these LOCKED in rookie contracts for 2nd through 7th round picks like RW and Sherman is changing the landscape for veterans in a way that nobody (that I have read) anticipated.
Stars are getting the big money - Brees, Flacco, Revis etc. That didn't really change except it looks like if anything there is even more room for them.
The grinders the solid to good performers are not getting their money. This is probably a mix of the relatively flat salary cap (consider that contracts are getting more expensive at the tail end and a salary cap that doesn't go up is not a good combination) and the fact that you now get rookies at contracts that are locked in for 3 years very cheaply. Why pay the guy with 8 sacks when you can probably find him in the draft for pennies on the dollar.
It will be an interesting long term development. I personally think they need to put incentive clauses into the CBA for rookie contracts. Fixed amounts based on certain metrics and that would change things to better for everyone
