    He probably had to put it in to get his client signed anywhere.

    I think you are confusing him with the rookie from Boise St.

    It is part of the business. But that doesn't mean we aren't human beings.
    That's my business too. Pack your stuff, enjoy.

    When you get paid the amount see guys do, it's not so bad.

    This is the very reason I don't blame players who hold out. By the time MJD is 45 he will most likely be riddled with arthritis and have a hard time moving for long periods of time. Most still believe these guys can move onto careers in broadcast, but the reality is that career path was in new avenue over the past +/-8 years and has really become saturated. When you account for the stars, out of work coaches and senior executives who take those potions and the ability to renegotiate every year since a new crop of talent leaves the league, they really don't have a lot of options.

    First of all, it's not sad in the least that he got cut from Miami.

    He did not have to "pack up his family" because he didn't HAVE to do anything. He picked football as a career and he decided to seek employment with a team after Miami let him go. Nothing sad about that. He was being a big baby about it.

    Tearing his knee to shreds on the 1st day of practice with the new team and missing out on the season IS sad and I feel for the guy. But the odds are, as a bottom of the roster player, he wasn't going to stick around here long anyway.

    At least I wasn't the only one who saw it this way.

    He could always ditch football and work as a Walmart greeter for $8 bucks an hour.

    Hope the Jets voluntarily give the guy some cash to help him out. They did this before for a db named Henderson IIRC .

    I feel terrible for the guy. Just when he began to think he possibly had a future and could make some decent money by being on an NFL roster, everything came crashing down during his first practice. Awful timing for him.

    Jamie Henderson, he was a 4th round draft pick, played a few years then had a motorcycle accident one offseason, never played again if I recall. I think they made an injury settlement.
