So the players have a safety net, teams do too

Wilson a 3rd round pick received $620,000 guaranteed.
Alfred Morris might have gotten half of that, though I doubt it.
A player should be able to renegotiate his deal whenever they want, just like an NFL team can cut a player whenever they want.
I'm not saying pulling a T.O. after 1 year of a contract is good business, but it's their profession and their decision. If it backfires, it backfires...but the player should still have that right as this is their job.
We don't sign our life away at our jobs. My employee can't block me from looking elsewhere and making more money. Why should the NFL block a guy like Russell Wilson who wouldn't even have to holdout because the Seahawks would hand him a blank check right now. (if they could)
