Voluntary Opt outs

Recommended Posts

So what happens if someone decides not to play after Thursday?  Any players who make more than $2.5mil, a single game check would exceed the $150k for players opting out.  So what happens if a player plays the 1st two weeks, gets their checks, they states I'm done.  (and not a halftime either) 

 

Is their contract voided?  How would it differ from doing it now, other than they don't get the $150k, but they did get more in their paycheck.  Does their contract not push back a season?

It would be a breach of contract and team could potentially recoup part of signing bonus, etc.  That would be an ugly situation.

Alright lads, T-10 hours until the opt-out deadline. Might see a flurry of names added today including Tre.

 

Will be checking this thread about every 5 minutes lol, fingers crossed.

Unless something crazy happens today (and I’m not saying it won’t), with the number of opt outs thus far this will hardly be a “half-assed” season.  Right now we’re at around 60 opt outs out of roughly 2000 players, or about 3%.

How many trade deadline days have turned out to be "mush ado about nothing"?

Hopefully today turns out like that - I still hope for a meaningful season. Financially, opting out makes most sense for marginal guys who had questions about even making the roster. If a bunch of those type of guys opt out, then I don't see an impact on leading to a season of compromised value.

Players can still leave at any time. They will give up a lot but just because today is the deadline doesn't mean more won't.

Yeah, I get that part. Feel the same way but really missed it and glad we get to see something

I did watch a lot of the habs/pens game last night.  Very high quality.  But I have noticed too that there seems to be a overall lack of hitting in all of the games.  Maybe they are all still trying to get back in game shape and don't want to get hurt.

I mean everyone that was really planning on it has probably already done it since they didn't know when the deadline would be. Could still be a few late deciders like Tre though.

WOW - the silence is deafening!

 

Notice: Put on your tinfoil hats, if you got them...

 

I wonder if there is a delay in announcing Opt-outs today - just in case announcements cause a domino effect.

 

/tinfoil hats off...

And many are marginal guys who probably would not have made a roster anyway...

Come on Gilly. Do it!

McCourty is a Huge loss. Maybe not as big as Gilmore but close.

It was great to see in the article that the Bills have been one of the best at watching player safety .. that stuff matters in free agency, not as much as the $$$$, but still matters.

Wish McCourtey woulda done it, but either way, our division got worse, which is great.

Doesn’t anyone find it odd that not a single Center or QB opted out? Considering they touch the ball and each other on every play. That object also will be having many of the skill players, refs, dee players, and ball boys touching it. I know objects can carry the virus if it gets any mucus and breath on it so I was just wondering if they will be trying to sterilize the balls in some way by frequently swapping them in and out and UVing them or something.

I was really worried about Morse with his brother and all.
