Just made himself even harder to drop to.
Even his retirement is selfishI have no doubt that's the primary reason he did it now. If he didn't announce it we would've dropped him before the 15 game threshold so he couldn't activate his clause for 2021, and would've gone out a loser. This way, the club will look like pieces of shit if we drop him knowing full well it's his last season.
Well played Darius, you fucked us again.
Maybe he was told he wouldn't be playing the required 15 games and decided to make the call himself ?
I would think that the "mutual option" he has in his contract would require an official part to it so probably not. Broncos need to plan their cap for next year...So...if that 15 game thing is legit and he now plays all due to saying he’s retired, couldn’t he just change his mind after the 15 games and then activate said clause?
Hell of a career, when it was good, it was awesome. But the past three+ years has tarnished it, he's not getting that respect back.
