He was the captain, but none of his teammates are his friends? Possible I guess. But being on a team and playing together for 8 months out of the year for 4 years is a lot different than the work-a-day jobs most of us have. Even if they aren't his friends, it still seems a ****** thing to do to your teammates.

Maybe I'm wrong and he really, really needs the money, but I doubt it. All I can say is that if I had 30+ mil stashed away, I would accept the buyout. At some point, the money becomes irrelevant. Maybe for Drury 30 mil isn't enough.
