OTAs are optional.
Oh, I know, but when the optional costs you a mere $2M for executing the option, regardless of who's job it was to know that, I'm not sure it's a bit not optional.
That being said, there's no way to build a team, especially a sports team, 1,000 miles apart so the clause is awesome because there are idiots out like this **** who'd make this kind of coin and opt-out of being with his team mates. So him thinking that the team would be better-served by working out on his own tends to make me wonder about his commitment to the team. Plenty will schluff it off, but A) some people showed up (maybe not because it'd cost them $2M otherwise), and B) he didn't think it'd help (enough) to be there. Is this clown some Zach and needs his Mommy more than the team? LOL!
I just disagree and think that if he's only worried about the $2M, he was expendable anyway.
