Default Re: Romo asking for $30M guaranteed

A) Condon is striking while the iron is hot. Romo wore out last year, and he's only 3 games into this year. It's smart bargaining to push for this now. Is he worth $30 mil guaranteed? Maybe right this minute, but who knows long term? Jerry Jones won't sign him now anyway.
B) Ben is probably, given the way the market on QB's is running now, worth even more than this deal. Be prepared for these kind of numbers when it comes time to deal.
C) The NBA deal is nothing like the NFL. In the NBA, you get drafted in position number X, you get contract number X. That's why those guys sign two days after drafted. You have to prove yourself.
D) The NFL can and should adopt that policy yesterday. Only a few agents would balk, because they also have older players in their stable, and this policy would pay those players the money that's being wasted on unproven talent coming out of the draft. Wouldn't you rather see Ben get paid $100 million than an unproven rookie QB coming out of college? For that matter, why not spread the wealth around if your QB is under contract. Pay your vets and save the dough you may blow on busts.
