That's what I thought of too, but can a team like that afford a #1 and #3 pick? That could be $8 mil in bonuses just on your first two picks.
I wonder how soon it will be before some f.o. (Bowden?) guy decides that he can do that to skirt a year, sign the comparable pick next year and not sign the other 1st rounder until some dollars come flowing in from some expected TV deal or some big salary comes off the books etc. They can't do it to the same guy/pick more than once but they can do it with there other pick year after year.
