    Coats: Demoff plays numbers game with rookies

    Demoff plays numbers game with rookies
    By BILL COATS | Posted: Wednesday, August 3, 2011 3:44 pm

    As executive vice president of the St. Louis Rams, Kevin Demoff is in charge of negotiating contracts. He has an interesting quirk when it comes to rookie signing bonuses, as first noted by Mac's Football Blog.

    Demoff always makes the amount a palindrome; that is, the number reads the same forward and backward. For example, here are this year's bonuses for the Rams' draft picks:

    1. DE, Robert Quinn -- $5,362,635

    2. TE, Lance Kendricks -- $1,573,751

    3. WR, Austin Pettis -- $614,416

    4. WR, Greg Salas -- $451,154

    5. S, Jermale Hines -- $176,671

    7. CB, Mikail Baker -- $59,495

    7. LB, Jabara Williams -- $49,094

    7. CB, Jonathan Nelson -- $49,094

    Further examples, from 2010: WR Mardy Gilyard, $552,255; TE Michael. Hoomanawanui, $215,512; DE Hall Davis, $188,881.

    Seriously, is this real? Or Parkay?

    looks like the Rams front office just can`t rid itself totally of the lunatic fringe.

    I'll take a Palindrone bonus, prefer the 7 digit versions better.
