This should shed some light:

"The league is gradually shedding its image as a gimmicky, cheap-athlete graveyard. Its salary cap is up to $1.38 million for a 20-man squad, and Aaron Garcia of the New York Dragons just signed an Arena Football-record, three-year, $500,000 contract. SaberCats offensive specialist Steve Papin just signed a two-year contract reportedly in excess of $200,000. "

Jackson, who we just signed delayed his signing with us to play out his contract for the arena league because he had a 6 figured deal and didn't want to break it..I don't blame him, not knowing if he was gonna stick in the NFL...That 6 figures will last him awhile if things don't work out here.

He dropped a lot of passes in QB camp. But I attribute a lot of that to him being nervous and the fact that there aren't any walls on the sidelines. haha

Man, there were some great plays made today at the Arena Bowl. Very athletic. Almost all of those guys play both ways. They have no other choice. Lots of one-handed catches and some solid deep throws.

If any of you have the opportunity to go check out a game, don't hesitate. It's really fun. At least here in Tampa. That place gets packed. Even last year when the team sucked.
