iron_city_ap: There are better ways to go about getting a better contract. I can understand both sides of the argument, but at the end of the day, the team wins the argument.


They both win. Kam's primary goal is more monies. His secondary goal is no training camp.

PluckYew: wiseolddude: Dear Pro Athletes, you signed a contract, please honor it or give the money back and go away.  Thank you.

As soon as the NFL guarantees their end.


That's incredibly simplistic. All NFL contracts are partially guaranteed, partially non-guaranteed. It reflects an allocation of risks that is heavily negotiated between team and player. The non-guaranteed portion is effectively a team option, which it gets as consideration for giving up the guaranteed portion. When a team cuts a player it's not dishonoring the contract; it's exercising a right specifically given to it under the contract. A holdout, by contrast, is a breach.
