    I have mixed feelings about the whole situation.. I mean teams cut players when they have no use for them. I often wonder how "insurance" comes into play with sports and high profile clients and if teams protect themselves in case a player gets a career ending injury if the insurance helps pay for whatever is guaranteed (signing bonus)

    They do injure their contracts. They don't usually pay for injury settlements.
