"I think it's been a week since we last spoke, so we're trying to get it all together. But we have a couple of good options. I think rather than use the word "release,' I'd prefer to say allow guys to explore all their options – just as we're exploring all of our options.
"Is that exactly negative? I think it's the right thing to allow people to investigate all their options. A lot of these contracts have provisions that say "you can't speak to anyone.' So, technically, it's a release, but it's really more correct saying, "Look, there's a challenge here. We want you to investigate all your options. Of course, we're one and let's stay in close communication.' I don't think there's anything negative around it at all. It's just letting people figure it out." FoxSports
