Nah, he ran out of guaranteed money, and needs some more. I think he only got 7.5 last year out of 13(?). To us it seems like hey you got paid, but to him its not enough for all that he has done to get there.

Yeah but a contract is a service for a monetary value over a certain time frame.... He offered his services for that long of time. Its that fucking simple. He is being a bitch about it.

He should really be complaining to his union chief, not the general public.

He fucked up and thought it was a good time to get to another team. No one wanted to pay his price so the Vikings called his bluff. They did a great job not budging.

Which reminds me, why don't players put in opt out clause in their contracts? Cause if teams can cut them, they should be able to opt out... Given they don't make the rest of the money left on the contract.


Like Michael Bennet if he had a opt out clause after 3/4 years hr wouldn't be in a low paying situation, with no leverage.

For fuck's sake, AD... Eat this year and don't fucking open your mouth about anything. Trying to strong arm a team that kept you after you after that shit is extremely poor form.

What I get from all of this is that the Vikings front office doesn't think they have a chance of winning right now or they would be doing whatever they could to make AD happy(aka back pay, etc)
