The NFL for the most part does not have guaranteed contracts, plus you have a player like Allen who is looking to be a starter somewhere next season. Also one player is not going to make that much difference in the NFL immediately like a top notch H.S. or college bball player does in the NBA.Tanking. Or the lack thereof I am glad that NFL teams for the most part do not partake in this like NBA and MLB. You always see teams battling to the end of the season, sans the Lions on Friday, that was embarrassing, even if it means a worse draft pick. It gets rediculou s at times in other sports how blatant it gets.
