If that were the case would you want to compete with WaS or DAL for JDR?
IIRC it is part of their collective bargaining agreement they have with the NFL.
Part of being unionized.
I seem to remember Bobby T wanted to take a lateral move to the skins and they had to give him a promotion to assistant HC to free him up from his contract in Den. As a position coach, it was part of that conversation when I heard they had a wage scale.
