Employers in all field retain rights that are not available to employees.

I don't think NFL contracts can be terminated at any time - they become guaranteed at a certain time during each season and the team is obligated until the end of the year. They're not guaranteed from year to year, though, so those long, multi-year committments are not as they appear. I'm not a fan of contract renegotiation, but I'm also not looking to permit pay cuts for underpreforming, either. And the Brownies would have more candidates for that than for raises!
