This is why I always applaud athletes for taking teams for all they are worth. I may not agree with the deal in terms of value, but I will never get on a player for taking what a team is willing to pay him.

If I'm an NFL player I keep a list of teams that function like the Ravens and avoid them at all costs.
I always was under the impression that a part of each NFL contract was guaranteed, and it was just that there were additional non-guaranteed amounts. Is that incorrect?
