The contract is the contract. If the player overachieves or underachieves they are tied to the guaranteed money in the contract, just like the organization. Right now the Saints are paying CGM to sit on his butt because they made the error in giving a guy with personality issues a ton of guaranteed money. This is no different to contracts involving other professionals. If someone wants to hold out for a better contract then that’s up to them...but the organization is under no obligation to comply. Just like a player is not forced to take a paycut.That works both ways though. What if a player outperforms his contract?
