'Cuse Him

Miami's Brad Kaaya isn't the only true freshman quarterback who's playing well in the ACC. Syracuse's A.J. Long (who started the year third on the depth chart) has also emerged on the scene and this former all-state standout from the Friendship Christian School in Lebanon Tennessee clearly looks like the future for his program. In just a game and a half (he got the job after Terrell Hunt went down with an injury and his backup, Austin Wilson, proved ineffectual), Hunt has completed 38 of 59 passes (64.4%) for 338 yards and 2 touchdowns. He's also run for 29 yards and a score (showing as well some great mobility in the pocket) and damned if this kid isn't one exciting player....Kind of reminds me (at 6'2", 190) of a bigger Russell Wilson and we all know how THAT turned out.

Seattle got quite a deal on Wilson. For awhile he was the lowest paid of their QBs, behind
Tavaris Jackson and Terelle Pryor.
He's probably due for a raise, thinking along dmarks model that
all employees are paid what they are worth.

I wouldn't mind being his agent.

Wilson got a standard rookie QB contract under the current CBA.He will do quite well after his current three year deal is up.

The current CBA protects teams and tenured players...for instance
under the prior agreement the Rams paid Sam Bradford 50 million dollars as a first round pick and he's been a bust.The new agreement limits the salary of rookies,allowing more cap space for seasoned players.
