The kid is trying to protect himself from potentially being screwed over in the future by a front office with a track record of unpredictable moves. Almost every other first round pick is asking for the same offset language and getting it. It's the front off that is being a jerk. If you really believe the guy is your future, the offset language really should not matter
From what i've read regarding this issue, I'd have to say its our front office who are looking bad in this scenario. picks 7 and 9 have signed without any offset language in the contracts as well as most other first round picks. Seems the dolphins have no leverage in this situation, i don't get it but I did not believe tanny would start,,,, like to see him make a push though, and this may put that to rest.
