If RJ has any pride as a player or a man, he'll hang it up after this year.
There is nothing to buy out. I do not know what gives anyone this idea. He is owed 16 M...GUARANTEED. If his arm falls off and he does not play another game, he still gets paid. If he sits on the bench, he still gets paid. If he gets released he still gets paid. RJ is not going to give up 16M dollars. It is not happening. Cashman and George are stuck with him. There is NOTHING to negotiate.
