    Every player's agent is going to use the contracts of UFA when negotiating for ther RFA client but that isn't reality.

    Now if VC wanted to sit out the year or sign for the tender offer AND bear the risk of injury the whole thing would be different.

    I think we landed in the right spot for both parties.
    nice post jomo

    These players have lives and families of their own. Life does not begin and end with loyalty to the job or the company you work with. I'm sure for some players playing football is just a job and they will work for the highest bidder.
    There was QUITE a bit of time between the time when teams could have made offers and when the statement about Cruz telling his agent not to take any. (saving face)

    In the same fashion we shouldn't be assuming Cruz was being a Diva - lets hold off on the sainthood too. He had no other options and smartly signed the one that was available THIS year.
