I wonder if signing Clowney would make it easier to dump his ass.

 

If not Clowney, then I'd rather have Clay Matthews or an UDFA or bring Jevon Kearse out of retirement than suffer Beasley's presence on my football team.

How could they be any harsher without being unprofessional? The statements they've made make their positions known. 

 

What good would being "harsher in tone" accomplish anyway? They've made their displeasure with him very clear. 

Harsher IMO would be not even broaching the "we still look forward to getting him and coaching him....."  Why even go there if he's dead to you like you seem to think/hope he is?

 

It's different than how they handled Dodd not reporting.  Jon Robinson on Kevin Dodd: 'We want people that believe in and are committed to what we're going to be about"

 

Now maybe they are just waiting for the opt out deadline to pass before changing the messaging but so far it's been more cordial than I would do.  Hence, there may be more to the story that we are not privy to.

Starting to think he will complain he can’t use his old helmet from high school or he will come out and call our GM a cracker. 

Hey, tried sending you a message. You playing flea this year or do I need to find somebody?

Presuming they are finished or soon to be finished waiting around for him and want to move on, here’s what they can lean on from the collective bargaining agreement with regard to the future of the free agent they signed to a guaranteed $9.5 million one-year deal in March.

 

Article 30, section 3 (a) Ineligibility for Termination Pay.

An otherwise qualified player will not be entitled to Termination Pay under this Article if the Club can demonstrate that, after receipt of a written warning from his Club in the form attached hereto as Appendix I, the player failed to exhibit the level of good faith effort which can be reasonably expected from NFL players on that Club.

 

Appendix I is “written good faith effort” letter, the body of which reads as follows:

 

The Club hereby provides you with written notice that you are failing to exhibit the level of good faith effort which can be reasonably expected from players on this Club. If you do not demonstrate the good faith effort which can be reasonably expected from players on this Club, you will not be entitled to Termination Pay under Article 30 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement if you are terminated before the end of this season.

 

The Titans may have sent such a latter already, they may have waited to see if Beasley was going to opt-out before deciding if that would be their approach.

Not opting out is the only rational part of this...

 

Not if he had any recourse to negate the fines, even if it was through arbitration or some other mechanism. 

 

Half the cash the Titans have paid him so far along with his guarantees are forfeit if the Titans flip the switch (15% SB trigger, 550k in fines). 

 

They should void the guarantees, send the warning letter, and go after his SB and not pay him any more money and then release him. At most they will only be out 1.5M cash already paid along with anything he is awarded in arbitration which would be down the road.

It's still crazy for him to not show up and just give away half a million dollars. 
 

But he benefits more by not opting out and then hitting free agency again in 2021 than he does in delaying his next big signing bonus until 2022. 
 

And the Titans still seem to want him. He fills a big need even if he is only a pass rush specialist.
