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.
But the comment in the original post that "you thought he had more drive" is a statement I don't see how you can make. We have no idea of his drive to play. Only know from his decision that he has health concerns for him or his family.
This and some more of this.
Well, we agree here. I would never begrudge their decision either. It was just surprising that Tell opted out of anyone it could of been. That's all. He had everything to gain this year and is a good player so far going into year 2. I was more expecting someone with a family or on the roster bubble to opt-out. He doesn't really fit either unless he has a kid I don't know of.
I can be frustrated and still respect his decision, so don't be so quick to make my comment into something it isn't.
Makes complete sense if you're a young player that plans on making a career in the NFL. For older, paid players, IMO it comes down to their family's well being and pre-existing conditions for them all.
There's so much misinformation about the virus, and we don't understand long term affects (effects?). Why take a chance.
