No. They all had legitimate reasons IMO.
Roquan came here, loved it enough to re-up. Same with Peters. Calais kept coming back and would’ve loved to have been back. Stanley re/upped. Andrews re-upped.
Way more example of good players who wanted to and did stay vs. ones who “wanted out”, usually strictly for financial reasons. Brown wasn’t going to get his stats here. Andrews was the alpha in Baltimore, so goodbye Hurst. Brown wanted to be a LT and we did him a solid and got decent comp for it. This Lamar thing is just crazy. No reason to be concerned IMO.
