yeah, he doesn't have to worry about her wrecking him anymore.
Wrong. His contract is paused the moment he retires. Whether he comes back now, next year or in 2050, Colts own his right for the remaining time left on the contract , in this case 3 seasons. There is no end date on that. He has no way out unless the Colts release or trade him. Which is why the Colts let him keep that 24 million. Doing so, ensured his rights are forever theirs.
In order to be part of the NFL Draft a player has to be 3 years from their high school graduation date. So if a kid graduated in 2018 he would be eligible for the 2021 draft regardless if there is a college football season or not. Trevor Lawrence has nothing to worry about. He probably has more to lose by playing this season than not. I've heard analysts say that he would have been the number one pick last year over Joe Burrow if he would have been eligible. As to the logistics of the 2021 NFL Draft, your guess is as good as anybody else's right now. With all sports in a state of flux I would say next year's draft isn't a high priority right now. I'm sure that if the major conferences go to spring football that players like Lawrence will opt out or the NFL Draft will move back to a later date. Just my on the matter.
