The Bow Tie Chronicles: Teams don’t always honor contracts, why should players?

In the 61st episode of The Bow Tie Chronicles Podcast, we look at Julio Jones’ offseason contract holdout. The Falcons, like most NFL teams, cut players annually in what has come to be known as “salary-cap casualties.” Teams don’t always fully honor their contracts, so why should Jones when there’s been a market-shift at his position? We also discuss the team’s upcoming USO trip, Ryan Schraeder, the Falcons available salary cap space ($7.2 million) and the salary numbers at the wide receiver position.
