Colts president Bill Polian (right) spoke yesterday about the need for a rookie wage scale in a radio interview with John Michael Vincent of 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis.
“We need to change the rookie system because to have, for example, Sam Bradford paid $50 million dollars in guaranteed money for never having taken a snap in the National Football League is just wrong,” Polian said.
“That money should go to veteran players who have earned it in the National Football League. That’s a very stark example, but it exists,” Polian continued. “It’s there, and it needs to be changed. And I don’t think many other people other than those such as agents, who have a vested interest in the present system, would have a problem with that.”
