• How did you score?
I just hope I'm not breaking any copyright laws by doing so. 2006 NFL Scouting Combine Wonderlic Test -- Page 5 41. A player signs a five-year, $25 million contract. What is his average annual salary? Correct answer: Tough to say, as the player probably would hold out for a bigger deal by the fourth year, if not sooner. 42. You treat your linemen to a steak dinner that costs $3,500 and receive exceptional service from the waitstaff. How much should you tip if you want to give 20 percent? Correct answer: Tip? I'm a professional football player, so I don't tip. The restaurant should feel honored that I'm even there. In fact, they'll be lucky if I even pay the bill. 43. A train carrying the New England Patriots departs Boston at 5:30 p.m. traveling 150 mph to New York City, 215 miles away. Meanwhile, a plane carrying the Jets leaves New York at 6:00 p.m. traveling to Boston at 400 mph. At what time will the Patriots feel disrespected because they had to travel on a train?

But don't think about it too long lest your head explode like Fernando Vargas' did Saturday night. 3. Congratulations to J.J. Redick on becoming the ACC's all-time leading scorer. Unfortunately, I fear his accomplishment might have elicited a new round of horrible poetry. Something along the lines of: Roses are red, violets are blue
