Can they go to him and say we are going to release you. I dont think next year is guaranteed so they can say we will give you another $4M or something like that and make you a free agent.
Is that legal in the NFL?
His contracted salary next year is Guaranteed, what does he care if he is cut?
The way this contract is structured, no cap savings are possible unless he gets suspended.
