Oh! Very interesting, hm I wonder if we would stop him though. I don't think we'd really have room for him if he did come back tot he league. Forte and Bush are both sick and if Bell can get a better grip on the ball we've got young talent in him.
Oh they wouldn't prevent it in his case bf. I was just sayin' that's how the rules read. Even if a guy retires as long as he was still under contract when he retired his right belong to the last team he was with. Now in the case of RWill since he's not under contract he could retire from playing like Moss did and come back to play for any team he wanted to.
It's just a rule to prevent guys from suborning contracts in order to get out from under and go to a new team without the old either approving it or receiving compensation if they expect it. In Barber's case the Bears would most likely grant him the release anyway if he asked for it.
I'm getting to that age where a lifetime warranty just doesn't mean as much to me anymore as an afternoon nap.
