    Him not taking their original deal is a different story. That's where the road forks.

    After he decided not to take the deal, sitting out was a perfectly reasonable thing to do.

    That's a pretty insane difference in guaranteed money (35 vs 10). If true, Bell looks even more justified in turning it down. Yikes.

    FWIW "rolling guarantee" basically means "yearly" guaranteed money... as in, after a certain date each season, the player's money for that year becomes "guaranteed". So it essentially creates a team option every offseason to cut that player with no consequences. Kind of a faux guarantee, really.

    Who rejected it? Do you have a source?

    According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the contract included $33 million in guaranteed money, which was going to be paid out over the first two years. Rapoport also noted that the first three years of the deal would pay out $45 million (or $15 million per season), but didn't note if all of that money was guaranteed

    seems you didn't believe this? but re posted the same source above

    Only the 10 mil was fully guaranteed.

    Pit went cheap and their SB window has closed. Unless you have TB and BB you can’t overcome stars leaving...
