NFL pay should be tied to performance

I am a die-hard fan of the Washington Redskins, but Sunday’s game with the Rams should be a wake-up call to us all that these players get paid too much money for doing nothing.

My suggestion is to pay them half the salary they are getting and let them compete for higher wages. If they don’t win a game, they should lose money, and if they win games, they should get extra money.

The players would be a lot more respected, and the games would be a lot more competitive.
