Disaster scenario that I'm afraid of:
The manager walks up to me thanking me for my patronage by giving me a coupon for free fries for life, however they don't have any ranch in the restaurant.
Seriously, I'm afraid that the entire DL walks away in the offseason. Look, Randle fought Moses for his jersey number and Eaton basically rebuilt his knee twice in the same calendar year.
Norman Hand turned out to be the invisible man all season long. At times he was nursing some ailment or another that kept him out of a small DL rotation, and when he was in the line, well you couldn't tell.
Basically, the author sees fit to note each of these players has means to come back at a lesser rate of pay, however, it's not like we're doing ourselves a favor by keeping them around, and in the same sense, we need to shake off dead weight like an Etch-a-sketch.
Unfortunately, we're not going to be able to do it all in the same season.
This is a two-edged sword imo.
Only 3 leagues this year. No sense in rooting for everyone in the NFL.
