But if they execute it "in their favour" ahead of that, doesn't that then mean they're contracted? So it really matter nothing
It doesn't matter if they say they want to stay, they almost always get out of the contract if they aren't happy with their position in the team. If they request to leave, they don't get paid. And usually by the time their option comes into play they the team they've signed with knows if they want to keep him or let him go.

"Look, we want you for 4 years. But if you're not sure the club will be a perfect fit, how about the last 2 years are in your favour". Helps to get them to sign, AND also means the salary for those final two years are locked in. It becomes simply a yes/no answer to activate the last 2 years, instead of the whole negotiation going back to the drawing board etc.

There seems to have been quite a few signed with the option in the player's favour and I wonder if they were covering bases knowing that Bennett was not going to go on for ever, that if they did not like the new coach, they had an out.

I recall that many of our players share the same player agent, this could be the common link as a few of our players have the player option clause?
