The hard rookie scale is another reason picks are signing in May, but really most picks had a hard scale anyway.
Here's an article that supports that from NFL.Com: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d8 ... 90-playersThe 90-man roster will include active, inactive, practice-squad, exempt and reserve-list players. It also will house unsigned draft choices and franchise free agents, per Aiello.
I hate change. It makes me look stoopit.
