Dwayne might suck at football, but he got paid.

retaining a backup job for the next couple years is his ceiling, completely fantasy irrelevant player

Most likely yes, but it does get interesting if Big Ben decides to call it a career.

Every shot you don't take, you miss.

Yeah... but some shots have a better success rate than others ;)

Kid got a futures contract. He doesn't even count towards the final 53 salary cap, it's essentially a practice squad deal.

From 2014: https://bleacherreport.com/articles/1947667-everything-you-need-to-know-about-nfl-futures-contracts


Here's the rub of the futures contract: For the most part, they're used on players who weren't quite good enough to justify an active roster spot this season but who teams think just might be worth an active roster spot next season. In many cases, this means teams locking up players currently on their own practice squad or another team's.


Typically, futures contracts are minimum-salary deals with little or no signing bonus. Most players signed to futures contracts will be fighting for a spot in camp; teams aren't going to invest much into players who may well be cut the following autumn.
