Could have made around a mil less and retire a Cowboy or go the Cards who he played twice a year and knew what the organization they were. He made his choice and now he's paying for it.
You don't offer the all time leading rusher NFL minimum. That's classless. You either offer something more, like say the $1.5 mil they are reportedly offering a back averaging half a yard less per carry or you say Emmitt we just think we need to part ways we are going to release you, i.e. no offer is better than an insulting one.
