But had he just sucked it up, reworked his deal, he could have easily gotten a 2-3 year couple million more dollars deal. Must be nice not to need a few million dollars. Plus them lowering the salary helps sign more pieces of the puzzle.
Yup, you took the words right outta my mouth....HEs a shadow of what he used to be and shouldve taken a pay cut.....The NFL is a buisness however....
