If there is a question mark here it would be letting he come back before he was completely healed but maybe there was no way to analyze that.
Absolutely, I agree with this. What I am saying is, Denver (as any smart business would do) capitalized on it so it's not really something that I imagine Kupe deep down is thrilled with but he realistically had no viable option otherwise. Honestly if it weren't for the injury settlement factor, he probably would have been cut.
I agree fully though that the FO has done a great job about being fair to both sides and smart about these things.
