    With how Gooddell has come down on players who are caught is less than scrupulous acts, does anyone want to guess that every team is going to mandate clauses in the contracts regarding off-field behaviour? This was something that the Bungles started back when Carl Pickens was bad-mouthing them, but I wouldn't be surprised if every team started putting them in as a mandatory clause to protect them financially.

    At this point, I'm thinking "how could they not"?

    I would suspect that the Pats have this covered, Andre Tippett et al are very good at this type of thing...

    I'm pretty sure that most contracts already include a "conduct detrimental to the team" clause. What has prevented most teams from exercising said clause is the inevitable confrontation with the NFLPA. That and the fact that coaches and FO's have been willing to turn a blind eye to off the field activities as long as the payer was performing at a high level.
