Here’s another thought, along those lines: because the NFL has a hard salary cap and teams must spend a minimum amount on salary, the general lack of guaranteed contracts means that when a player is no longer producing, they’re cut, and that money gets used on someone who is (or who is expected to).

This is a disappointment. Ted Valentine should be excluded from the NCAA tournament because he’s a generally shitty ref, not because he turned his back on Joel Berry.
