I'm all for non-garanteed contract for players. Maybe they'd ask for money they can actually earn instead of having infamous contract years and then sit on their lazy *****.

If the salary is right for the performance, the player won't be cut.

Under this system though, to be fair for the player you might have to pump up some performance clauses a little which I don't like.
I'm VERY much for performance clauses. I agree with everything you said here Vlad. Without some protection for the owners, they are not going to agree with any deal. The players need some protection. in the NFL, competition is their protection.
