Players attitudes always change in last year of contract unless they are being overpaid on a franchise tag like Byrd.
Byrd was underpaid on the franchise tag. He got offered more the next year by the Bills and signed for more still with the Saints. And whatever happened to him in New Orleans, not one person involved with the Bills has ever questioned the guy's attitude, in his last year here or any other time, not one.
Plenty did on the boards, but that's just what happens when you take more money elsewhere. Fans don't like that.
As for the thing about Sammy, I guess it's good. I think he's always had a good attitude and am not sure how any of this will affect his ability to stay healthy, which has been his problem. Certainly not a bad thing but his success will come down to his health rather than his attitude.
His snap to release is because he can do it.....defenses are terrified of losing contain and breaking lose in their secondary.
We are moving into a new offense which might require him to have to get the ball out sooner in a WCO.......this year is gonna tell us a lot
His snap to release is also because he won't / can't make anticipatory throws, and that he has a tendency to leave even clean pockets and spend a couple of seconds running towards the sidelines.
Agreed that this year will tell us a lot.
