Bears coach Matt Nagy explained on Saturday that “very few” contracts protect players against having their future guarantees voided by a suspension arising from on-field misconduct. He may be right Alex Goligoski Jersey , but other players definitely have that protection, and it’s smart for more and more to try to do the same.
It’s also smart for more and more teams to provide that protection.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Roc Nation has secured this term in the contracts recently signed by Giants running back Saquon Barkley and Rams running back Todd Gurley. Given the position they play, a real possibility exists of being flagged, fined Authentic David Perron Jersey , ejected, and/or suspended for dropping their helmets and initiating contact while running between the tackles, or for using any portion of their helmets to butt, spear, or ram an opponent who is trying to tackle them. Especially since no one knows how aggressively the new helmet rules will or won’t be enforced.
Given that Smith’s four-year contract is fully guaranteed Tyler Seguin Jersey , and given that he plays linebacker, why shouldn’t he want that protection? It’s one thing to have guarantees wiped out due to off-field misbehavior. It’s quite another to risk forfeiting guarantees for simply doing what the coaching staff wants him to do.
So the Bears should budge on this one. Given that the Giants and Rams (wisely) already have, the Bears and all other teams should follow suit.
President Donald Trump congratulated Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys football team, for saying his players will be required to stand for the playing of the national anthem.
Trump tweeted Friday: "Way to go Jerry. This is what the league should do!"
Jones was the first owner to publicly say that his players would not be allowed to stay off the field during the anthem. Jones said the team's policy is "you stand at the anthem Womens Samuel Girard Jersey , toe on the line."
However, Jones also said he understood the point of view of players who say they aren't protesting the flag or the military. He also described Trump's continuing involvement in the anthem issues as "problematic" for the league and "unprecedented." He said, "yes, everybody would like for it to go away."
Trump has repeatedly tried to bring attention to the player protests, which he opposes Philipp Grubauer Jersey , and believes the culture war issue helps energize his base.
