Not to insensitive, but how old is Mike Brown? Is he in good health?
These are important questions.
I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.
The NFL draft pay system is absolutely broken (The fact that Gene Upshaw never tried to change it when both the owners and the majority of players wanted to shows how truly inept he was as head of the players association).
However, the Bengals knew full well that the slotting system was standard procedure for paying draftees and that if they didn't want to play the game, they should have traded the pick or signed Smith before 5 and 7 were signed.

I really thought this "Hard Kocks" thing would pressure the Bengals into making a deal to avoid looking cheap on National TV.
Apparently, I underestimated just how cheap the Bengals truly are.
