Take a season off, get right and then come back? What do you guys think?
I'm pretty sure his decision is made and he is done.
It would take a monumental change of heart by him to see him on the field ever again.
I dont think HE thinks its physically worth it, especially now.
What would be the purpose? If he wants to come back just wait until next year.
I mean, if he was that hard pressed for 150k, sure, but he’s not playing again.
Sure thing. If the center position is already taken, then put him in the TE position when we need another blocker.
Money and rights? Off season training and medical care??
@waldoputty loves TEs!!! This thread might wake him up!
Doesn't he get paid this year though? Wouldn't it be less than what players are opting out for?
I imagine he has slimmed down a lot. The body was not built to carry 300+ pounds around. Not healthy and no reason to do it if retired.
Cabin fever has hit the homestead....
That happened about 4 months ago!
He is getting like $8 million this year right? If if he did, wouldn't he have to pay that back, or some portion of it, depending on the remainder of his contract.
No idea. I'm not a contract guy......
Fred is a really smart fellow -- if he chose to do that, I'd be reluctant to 2nd guess him! I think he'd make sure he's 100% first.
Let the man enjoy a life with the level of health he has. I would however like to see him hired by the cowboys to maybe make videos on the Dallas cowboys website. He can breakdown big offensive linemen plays every week during season. Maybe step in and talk on the radio shows here and their.

Players have or are considering opting out of the season due to Covid-19.

I think this would hurt the team. It would push whatever cap hit they are absorbing this year and push it to next year when the cap may go down significantly. I don’t think he would have made the decision he did if he wants to play again. He overcame it and played and now wants to live a normal life and not keep fighting it. He has more than enough money so I don’t blame him. There may be much more to his situation we don’t even know.
That's EXACTLY what ranching said!!! I'll quote it for you "Take a season off, get right and then come back? What do you guys think?"
But why would the Cowboys accept that? Come back after the season is over.
