barely show up and collect your paycheck.  when the season starts, change every play they radio in.  They call for a run, throw a bomb.  they call for a pass, call for run off tackle.  who cares if the right people are in to run the play, let whoever is in figure out what they have to do.  don't even call a time out if people are running around not knowing what to do. snap the ball no matter what.  they can bench him, the can put him on inactive for the week, but they have to pay him or cut him.

peachpicker: Porkbelly: Idiot signs contract; idiot doesn't want to fulfill contract; idiots - we are a nation of many idiots.  I've heard that rich people sometimes hire hitters to solve their problems.

We get it. You think he's uppity.


As much as I want to side with the player's freedom, as an NFL fan, I have to agree with peachpicker.

Deshaun Watson signed a 4 year, $156,000,000 contract with the Houston Texans, including a $27,000,000 signing bonus, $110,717,123 guaranteed (source).

Free agency is fine, but don't sign a 4-year commitment with a crappy franchise and then refuse to honor it after you've got your signing bonus, etc...

I mean, what if Mahomes decided he wants to play for a different team next year, and signed another long term commitment, then did it again in 2022?

The teams would stop giving any bonus, the fans would hate losing their star every year to another team, etc...

What about mid-season?  After starting 4-4, can someone switch teams to a 7-1 franchise?

At some point, players need to either not sign the contracts, or honor their commitments.
