That's exactly true.
However, Shaun's a smart guy, and eventually he will realize that what's best for his career and pocketbook is to work something long-term out with Seattle, as there is absolutely no market for RB's in the NFL right now, and that's not going to change soon.
The thing is, I'm not so sure that the ball is in SA's court at all. SA is a bit more advanced in age than other RBs seeking long term deals (he's 28 the end of August) and has mustered a pretty good workload during that time as he's on pace for around 2000 carries by age 30. From what I've heard, the front office in Seattle isn't enthralled by all of these factors and have so far remained steadfast in their demands.
It will be very interesting to see what happens in this situation because he could very well become a new presedence setter in the league, a productive late 20s RB without a starting job or home.
