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?
We have Tannendouche to thank for this. He did the same on a lot of contracts. To get out of the mess $$$ wise will take at least another season. 2014 will actually be the first shot at rebuilding, as long as they fire Tanny & Rex. All bets are off if either of these two are still around.
