Don’t listen to the Dolphins’ official spin: “Oh, this is not a big deal. Just an internal issue we will work out.”
It’s not a small little thing requiring the dotting of some I’s. It’s bigger. It’s HUGE.
Xavien Howard is holding out.
A year after he willing agreed to a contact, and willing accepted it, and willingly signed his name on the dotted line…he is now proving he is NOT a man of his word. He feels he does not have to honor a contact that he already committed to.
He is greedy. He is dishonest.
If he had a poor season last year, could the Dolphins tell him that they are not going to pay him what the already agreed to pay him? No. You cannot voluntary break the terms of a contract. That’s the law. That’s why contracts are in writing. That’s why a signature is required. That’s why your lawyer (agent) sits next to you and makes sure you know what you’re signing.
And still, these greedy players think they run the world.
Does he deserve more money? Yes! But then don’t sign a deal for a paltry salary. Don’t agree and then renege. Be a man.
Be a man. Tell the Dolphins that you’re happy they give you millions and millions of dollars, instead of telling them, “I want millions and millions of dollars…plus some more money also.”
Aaron Rodgers’ greed is not about the money. Rather, he greedily wants to make every single decision for the Green Bay Packers. HE gets to make the draft picks and call the plays on defense and set the price for hot dogs at Lambeau Field. Xavien Howard greed IS about the the money.
Howard is our best defender, and I hope they work this out, and fast. We don’t want a year of nonproduction, like when the LaVeon Bell refused to play for the Steelers, and they haven’t been the same since.
