This! Get it together, Melvin!

He is available in my keeper league, and I'm sure he will drop down to my pick if he is sitting out. How do I not draft the guy in a keeper league?

I feel bad for Corey Coleman. Dude has had such a tough NFL career since being drafted.

And Antonio Brown shows up for Training Camp in a hot air balloon.

Different City, Same Nonsense. That guy is almost as in love with himself as Arod is.

Enjoy going 6-10!

Why don't NBA players show up to beginning of each season fat as fuck? These are professional athletes at the highest level, mostly in their prime. These days everybody is working through the off-season, the only difference is they aren't taking hits and are letting their body recover from hits. For every Kelvin Benjamin that shows up fat as shit and blames his quarterback, there are 100 guys like Bell who can take a whole season off and show up in great shape.

Just asking for the pros and cons

 

Bell is a shitty teamate IMO...left his team hanging and they needed his ass, probably a good business decision though

IMO a percentage of athletes get lazy when money is guaranteed...what percentage is certainly up for debate.

I am all for the NFLPA making changes if they choose to do so.

You can lower the chances of lazy players by making the contracts shorter but increasing the guarantees. A full guarneteed 3 year deal would keep pretty much anyone motivated. Hard to pull off though.
