Pretty sure he waited until the last minute to sign it last season, and yes, it is guaranteed, but an injury in a meaningless game certainly hurts when looking for employment next season.

If he's going to be playing on a 100% salary tag, skipping preseason activity is simply logical. "The fans" would do it, too, if their salary was at stake.


I'd be curious if stepping into a full speed game when you haven't played doesn't actually increase injury risk. And underperforming 3-4 weeks while you get up to game speed doesn't help your numbers and FA value.

Hines Ward in a contract year took out an insurance policy and came to camp. That's the right way to do things, and the SMART way.

And what happens should he get injured while training on his own...with no contract?
We know how the Steelers blow off pre season games for their front liners. Absolutely no reason for him not to sign and get to camp with his teammates...none!
