    Erasmus close to signing?

    WEDNESDAY NOTE
    * The Vikings have typically waited until the final week before the opening of camp to get their rookie draft picks signed and that has typically entailed signing the late-round picks first. However, the Vikings have made significant early progress on getting first-rounder Erasmus James signed and a deal could come by the end of the week.


    This was on the bottom of the story on VU about eddie george. I like the sounds of it and hope we can get a deal done quickly with troy too.

    Awesome, I hope we get it done soon. The last thing we need is a holdout!

    It will be tougher to get wiliamson's deal done though, since the top picks are waiting to see what alex smith gets, and the 49ers might purposely wait until the last minute to finalize smith's deal because of this.

    From NFL.com:


    Chicago Bears Updated:07/20/2005
    Running back Cedric Benson may arrive to camp late for the same reason many other first-round picks will, and that is that they're all waiting on Alex Smith. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Benson, the No. 4 overall pick in the draft, is waiting for Smith, the top overall pick, to sign his deal with the 49ers


    Miami Dolphins Updated:07/20/2005
    Running back Ronnie Brown is waiting for San Francisco's Alex Smith to sign a deal with the 49ers before Brown begins that process with the Dolphins, according to the Miami Herald. Smith's deal will set the market for the rest of the draft picks who were drafted early on

    I don't see what the problem with signing these picks are. If the players weren't so greedy they would take what the person last year got with a slight adjustment for inflation, it isn't as if that wasn't a lot.

    If agents weren't under so much damn pressure to not sign a "bad" contract we see these things done after the draft.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    i dont see where greed really comes into this.

    i mean, they worked real hard to get where they are.

    and if my job included not being able to eat a cheeseburger once a week.. id want to be paid millions too.

    That's good to hear. I'd hate to hear of us having trouble signing a rookie.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.
