Not exactly the most professional move, unless he was misled.

I actually don’t blame the that guy much, they are 1 win behind the division title and want to go with a rookie, maybe it works out, but shit tough one to take for a vet QB.

I’m not sure I understand— is he effectively AWOL?

Or….
maybe he wanted to be with his wife and newborn child???
