The bye week is upon us, and while it was a great break for myself as well as the Detroit Lions players, it's all business as usual starting on Monday.
I'm getting an early start by going back to our Madden simulation series. The norm is to play the Madden simulation on Saturday mornings to check out how the game's video games version on the coming Lions game. With no Lions game on Sunday, I'm taking something of a different approach to things this week.
Odell Beckham Jr. became one of the bigger stories of the week when he and the Cleveland Browns decided to part from their respective teams, with his final decision to waive his contract expected to be effective on Monday. Naturally, considering how big the Lions list and No. first priority for waivers, many are asking if Detroit will be adding him after the waiver claims are being processed.
Personally, I think it's unlikely it taking place. Given how the Browns restructured his contract--eliminating both remaining years on his contract, and not adjusting his 2021 salary--it makes little sense for Detroit. It would require an immense amount of cap space to fit him on the roster in the coming season, and they'd only play nine games with Beckham (if Beckham doesn't throw protests about joining Detroit) prior to becoming a free agent. They could be able to get a compensatory choice out of it, but that's only assuming they aren't active themselves as free agents. But, really, when it comes to Madden it's not necessary to fret about locker room drama or creating a culture or even really care for cheap madden coins the limit on salaries.
