That would be one hell of a conspiracy story. Frankly, it sounds like it could be easily possible too. If so, it would be top headlines for weeks. I personally don't see it, but hey, anything is possible in this crazy world.
Fan forums are used by members with opinions. You can agree with the opinion or choose not to agree. Either way, it's fine. But to think one's opinion is lesser than yours can get upsetting. There is no correct call here. These players are doing what they think is right for them and their families. The team hurts a bit but in the end, it's just football. This year is going to be wacky no matter what.
On a positive note, that pushes Tell's rookie contract back one year and we might have him on a cheap contract in 2023, where he might have developed at CB instead of this season where he would have been valuable depth, but not a cornerstone of this defense. Milligan is essentially a special teams player only anyway, so I get his decision.
That's fair enough too. I was more rooting for him because I see potential in him and was disappointed when he opted out. I guess I should of worded it differently. In any case, I wish him the best, and I'll leave it at that.
