    Paywall. I can see guaranteed $$ as a big hill the players will stand on.

    With so little $$ guaranteed out of contract now, owners have a lot of control.

    If NFL players want guaranteed contracts they should give up their ability to sit out while under contract. The NFL players have it pretty good in that regard. No other sport can a player under contract say he/she is not going to play until the owner agrees to pay him/her more money regardless of the contract in place.

    Isn't that something the players would be 100% ok with and the owners would balk at? It's ridiculous that the most popular, richest league in NA doesn't have guaranteed contracts. Their union is so weak.
