If this doesn't happen until Hartford camp opens, Redden's cap hit is still on our books during the Free Agency period. Richards will be long gone at that point.

I guess Redden could just leave the Whale at any point and the contract could be voided. But he sounds like this is a decision for the summer.

Also, how soon after he refuses to report do we get to void the contract? Is there a suspension first?
Hopefully, he pulls a Brett Favre and retires, only to come back soon after.
