NFL Contracts

I wish the press wouldn't throw around NFL contracts around so much, as if they mean something. Headlines read "Seahawks sign Burleson to 7 yr, $49M contract" or "Cowboys sign Glenn to $20M extension," when those guys will be lucky to see half of that. All of the contracts are padded at the end to make agents look good, when the player is never going to see that money. So why even throw those figures around? They're totally deceptive and don't mean a thing. It's not like it's the NHL, MLB or NBA where the money you see in that story is what the player is going to get, and the team is going to be on the hook for.
