No idea what anyone, including HHCD himself, can be thinking.
It's clear he doesn't want to play football. How can he/his agent talk himself up negotiating with other teams when any tape from the last 3 years shows what the reality is?
Yeah, he'll play extra hard against us. Until he gets tired of getting his ass flattened, which is to say 1 to 2 plays at most.
“If some dum team watches my tape, doesn’t realize that I quit caring years ago, and still wants to pay me millions to avoid contact, then so be it. I’ll laugh all the way to the bank!”
My guess is that’s what HHCD is thinking.
