Guaranteed contracts are a great benefit and the players should take advantage of it if they want to.
One of the reasons it's guaranteed is BECAUSE of the fact that a player can get hurt WHILE fulfilling the contract. Thus he can't be penalized for not fulfilling his contract. If Drury got hurt skydiving, that would be a totally different matter.
