RAIDERS LOWBALL QUINN
There's a potentially intriguing story developing at the top end of the draft. On Tuesday, we reported that the Raiders are negotiating with quarterback JaMarcus Russell, receiver Calvin Johnson, and quarterback Brady Quinn at the top of the draft.
As we reported roughly an hour ago on an unexpected (but much appreciated) appearance on The Dan Patrick Show, a league source tells us that the Raiders have made a "lowball" offer to Quinn.

If he wants to go #1 he might accept that lowball offer. Think how that would affect the pay of the rest of the picks..

Well I guess his thinking could be, why go #1 if you dont get the $$$, I thought that is why draft prospects want to go high, more $$$

Yeah if I was Quinn and they were offering me 55 million instead of 62 million, I'd be insulted and run from that deal. LOL!!!!

They are just using him as leverage on the other two guys, so they may think of accepting lower offers. I don't think I have ever heard of a team drafting the #1 pick based on who took less money, but who knows these days.

I think they already know who they want and are looking for ways to get him as cheap as possible.

Isn't that exactly what happened last year with Mario and Bush?

Remember the salaries for rookies in the NFL is the most overpriced, ridiculous, insane pay scale in all professional sports. Granted football players have the shortest careers but c'mon how much is "potential" worth? There should be at least a 2 year salary cap, and if they produce the pay should go up accordingly. The way it is now is absolutely crazy. Particularly 1st round picks, if they flop, they kill the team's cap and the fans hate them.

He's the best fit for that offense. Expect Condon to counter under pressure from Quinn and the player agency CAA to nab that #1 overall pick.

Calvin Johnson will accept a cheaper contract knowing he might go 4th overall if not choosen by the Raiders.

I have been afraid of this possibility for a while. Quinn would accept less money only he is sure he won't be drafted in the top three. After that the salaries take a dip that gets even worse after #5. See link to Peter King article that shows last year salaries at the bottom of the first page.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/writers/peter_king/04/22/mmqb/index.html

Plus, Quinn would be a perfect fit for the West Coast offense favored by the new Raiders coaching staff.

Finally, PFW has yet another mock showing just this, but guess what, they have Russell coming to us.

Way off on that. Cleveland will nab him at 3, without a doubt.

If Quinn goes first that will have a big chain effect for at least the top 10 or 15.

Quinn might just sign it to be a 1st overall, all he wanted was to be a 1st overall.

Please tell me how?

It makes almost no difference whatsoever. Instead of Russell, whoever, Quinn it will be Quinn, whoever, Russell.

Nothing, no difference, nada...

Draft could possibly look like this:

OAK:Quinn
DET:Russel
CLE:Peterson
BUC:Thomas
CRD:Adams or Brown

Russell is a downright awful fit in Detroit. He compares to Daunte and Martz hates Daunte.

Going #1 to the Raiders would bring more money than going anywhere else in the draft. If Cleveland picked him at #3 it would be for less money than a #1 pick..

Im going by the rumors that have stated that if Russell is their at two they select him. My question is who is their for us at 9

Quinn isnt going #1. Raiders are just trying to bring down the price of whoever they pick.

He's the sure pick for the Raiders, unless somebody of the Texans' front office may speak with them about the way Reggie Bush ran 565 yards and caught for another 742 yards last season and Mario Williams got 4.5 sacks and 35 tackles.

Isn't his agent Tom Condon? Condon has a pretty big ego and I'm not sure he will allow a lowball deal to occur.

everything you hear for the next 3 days is a lie.
