None of this past April’s National Football League first round draft picks have been signed to a deal yet.
If the Buffalo Bills want to get first round draft pick running back CJ Spiller in on time they better get cracking on contract negotiations.
The obvious reason is due to the collective bargaining agreement expiring in February of 2011.
Due to the CBA expiring teams must administer bonuses in alternative ways than before. For example, instead of a roster bonus in 2011 teams may administer more signing bonus money or may push back the roster bonus in 2012.
In the end, if the Bills want to get Spiller in on time they better get going with the face to face meetings with Spiller’s agent.
