    Locker made the same decision and the Titans benefited as a result so it ain't all bad.

    Rookies are never going to make as much again. Luck could've had an extra $30 million. I don't think he made a good decision.

    But I guess I don't have the right to say that or express my opinion on this topic.

    But he's only making a little less than he would have in 2010. It will be a very different scenario comparing 2011 and 2012 rookie salaries.

    refreshing to see these guys stay in college an extra year and not get seduced by money.

    i wonder who will be the worst team next year and end up with Luck.if i had to guess i would have to say Buffalo certainly seems to be the first team i think of.i also think that Arizona could struggle next season.also i think Cincinnati could end up in the mix also.

    Sometimes when you make a good moral decision, it looks stupid in a materialistic world.

    I have one last pitch for this...

    Sometime it's not about what you want. It's about what you can do for others.

    Staying in school a year??? Please. Taking an extra $30 million and setting up generations of your family for life OR donating large amounts of money OR starting a charitable organization OR... ETC.


    Don't pass up the opportunity to make a positive influence on others life just to be the big man on campus for another year. For $30 million, a year of education and a diploma can wait.

    Actually, the rookies this year will be making far less. That's why the talent level of last year's draft was much higher. People couldn't explain it then, but the players must have known there was this possibility. We can't sign any drafted players until there is a new CBA, and the new CBA will undoubtedly have a rookie wage scale.
