The worth of a thing is the price it will bring. Nobody is the bad guy here. He has every right not to work for a penny less than he thinks he is worth and the 69ers have every right to keep lowering their offer.
Of course, the fact that other teams can’t bid should be a crime, but that’s another story.
What would be the use of having a “draft” if players who are “drafted” could afterward tender bids from other teams? If that would be the case, then get rid of the draft completely and allow players to apply to any/all teams they wish (talk about the ensuing chaos of that system!!!!!)
WTF is going to draft and sign him next go around? He will have missed a year of organized ball and he’s proven to be a headache. The NFL has a salary slotting system. Too bad that he didn’t get picked higher but that’s life in the NFL.
