If you missed USA Today yesterday, be sure to check it out online. Among the things I learned from their annual salary issue were that Gary Walker got an $11 million signing bonus from the Texans last year, the Cowboys had the league's lowest median salary at $384,000, and Robert Gallery was the only rookie to have the highest salary on his team. Fascinating stuff, and I especially like how the USA Today charts distinguish between actual money paid and cap value.
It's a year of huge cornerback contracts, with A.J. Bouye and Stephon Gilmore breaking the bank. But will these big-money contracts, and the big-time gambles associated with them, pay off?
