yeah, he'll be under a suspension, which should give him time to get into game shape between training camp, preseason,and then 4 weeks working out on his own. it's possible he could be made to serve a year suspension at some point too.

Players cannot afford to payback the money. Not Ricky, Not Winslow, not any of them.

Say the get a $10 million dollar bonus. after taxes, and attorney/agent fees. They would be lucky to get $5 million in the bank. But when ordered to pay it back , they must pay in full $10 million. I was reading this in the Cleve paper. So it is almost impossilble. So Ricky really has no choice.

alot of times what they'll do also is threaten the player by telling them they want it all back, and then work out a happy medium to only take part of it back, or they'll negoiate a new deal, for x amount of dollars and then take that money back from them as soon as they sign in it.. possibly in a smaller signing bonus or what have you.
