1. Depends on the language of the contract. However, the manner in which he was just put on IR earlier this yer and just told to "go home" rather than try and rehab any injury he had speaks pretty clearly to suggest that there wasn't a similar for-injury clause that McNeill had. The problem with trying to get him on breach of contract, and Ant as a (filthy) lawyer can probably address this better than I, is that the burden of proof is on the plaintiff (the team) to show that Gaither was physically capable of performing the duties of his contract (along with additional legalese caveats as far "without risking further permanent injury" and what not). And how exactly do you satisfy that burden of proof? The team doctors can say that they can't/don't find anything wrong with him, but he can claim to still be dogged by pain and that's a completely personal thing (how do you prove that he's not feeling pain when the only person with firsthand knowledge of whether pain is being experienced is the person claiming to experience it?). 2. I highly doubt it. For one, it's seeming fairly apparent he himself has no interest in that. He's got his money, he's got his guarantees. Then you've got the countless number of guys on the team that did and have gone out there and played hurt, busted their butts to try and save their season and their coach, and those who were in contract years with their own earning potential and livelihood on the line and Gaither decided to quit on all of them because he couldn't tough it out for them when they toughed it out for him previously so that he could get his big pay day. I'd say bridges are burnt to ash at the point. Short of Gaither letting the whole team line up and play Nick Novak on his twig and giggleberries, I don't really see trust ever being restored.
