    That's a nice junk of guaranteed coin, puts a bit of pressure on the unproven at the NFL level chump.

    That's a lot of free money for a rookie,
    I guess it's not that hard to twist Grandpa Al's arm to get what you want.

    This is garbage. What incentive does he have to play well.

    Let's hope the Vikes never get the #1 pick again.
    Wahay too much IMO...not sure if I would have caved if I were the Raiders.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    If we did get the #1 draft pick I'd say trade it some other team that is willing to spend that much dough on a player that is unproven in the NFL. That is really crazy, the Raiders must be real desperate to find a decent QB these days.

    Thanks Josdin

    I can only assume that he wanted more than that, if that is the amount that they "settled" on.
    I want this greedy bastard to fail.
    He wasn't even THAT special in college.
