Well to be fair, if it was already decided that we weren't going to meet JLs contract demands, it was better to trade him for whatever, than just let him walk as a FA.True, there is a big difference between a trade and a good trade - remember Tunsil?

If I'm reading this right, the Dolphins have an out after next season. Can't say I blame him, NFL contracts should be fully guarateed.
Have you ever done contract work? You contract the rate, not the total sum. If I do more than what you've initially asked me to do, I'm charging more money based on my time spent.
Howard overperformed relative to his contract's expectations and he's using the leverage to charge more.
No one is saying it’s a good thing, just that that is the way it’s done in the league. If you are not worth it, the team cuts you when there is none guaranteed. If you are, sometimes they convert some to guaranteed and extend a year or two. If you are all-pro,you get a bump. Don’t know why we are holding to a diff standard than anyone in the league.So he never had any intention of fulfilling his contract obligations?
I can't do nearly enough mental gymnastics to spin that as a good thing.
