Understood . But the problem I have is owners who don't want to pay specific players what they are requesting yet they come up with all these legal loopholes to keep them from leaving.I think that is outright bull feces and cowardly.The owners can't pay more. They are hamstrung by the CAP. If they go overboard on a QB, they pay for it somewhere else on the roster. Some owners would pay more if they could stack their team with talent If they do because they want to win, then that is admirable to the fans too.
I believe a player should be able to ask for whatever salary they desire. I also believe that the owners should be able to tell them hell no when they choose to. But if two parties cannot agree to an salary, the player should have the freedom to leave.
All of this "I don't wanna pay your desired salary and I don't want anyone else to have you" nonsense from owners with franchise tags, etc needs to stop.
