Barkley

NJLCO : 1:51 pm
Is he at OTA’s or are these also not mandatory?
He's not under contract so he cannot attend  
.
He cannot do anything until

Until he signs the tag or a contract
Don't worry  
he'll sign something and report just before the season, and pull his groin or something, and miss the bulk of the season.
The "O" in OTA  
stands for optional. They are not mandatory even for those under contract.

Correct. They are optional (though as pointed out, not Barkley at this point), but that's not what the "O" stands for.
For Barkley, O is going to mean Off the team  
We have running backs on the roster that can play. Is Barkley a great player ? Of course, but I don't think management is all too worried and this team will be successful with or without him. He better open his eyes.

I think you are way off on your assessment of the FO and what they think of Barkley. We also don’t have a single RB on the roster that you can pencil in for a full seasons worth of carries.

It’s one thing to not want to pay Barkley, it’s another to say we will be fine without him, let alone excel. There’s nothing to support it.
I like how this year

Everyone agrees that optional means optional and doesn’t mean mandatory

It's probably because passive-aggressively defending Kadarius Toney, at this point, is weird.
