    I hope we can get all out guys signed before training camp.
    I think that had a lot to do with our fast start last season!!!

    Since we drafted so far down in the first round, the difficulty of getting people signed will a lot less than it was with Rivers, or other number ones drafted before him. There is likely already a tacit admission on both sides that someone drafted #30 is not going to break any new ground in contract negotiations. I won't be surprised if just about all of them are signed either before camp or shortly there after. We don't get the pick of the litter at our draft spot, but negoatiations are easier and the cap hit is more like a jab than a kidney punch. I would also suppose, though without any of the logic of experience or specific knowledge of the negotiations, that a lot less of the contracts will be in performance incentives, giving cap meisters something more predictable to deal with. There will be incentives, but not the break the bank kind. A big raise for leading the league in interceptions is not likely to be a serious risk with a guy like Weddle. Weddle might have more than normal leverage because of what the team paid for the pick, but he's still a mid second rounder. The rest will just slot unless there is a really stupid agent. Davis's agent won't be gunning for bragging rights like Calvin Johnson's or Demarcus's. Laissez les bon temps roulleĀ“.

    Why not ?

    Players routinely leave college early and sign NFL contracts. Maybe I missed something?

    Anyway it is good to see the dominoes falling early so we do not have any distractions going into the season.
