If the NFL has this rule, then I believe he has to follow it. But then it should have to apply to all upcoming football players equally. I know he wants fame and money, heck, we all do. But people want what they want when they want, so I'm not surprised that someone is trying to overturn it. The NFL's reasoning for this rule sounds reasonable to me, maybe gives them a chance to go to college.
I'm a tennis fan, and players used to be allowed to play at 14? and it was changed to 16?. This was done for the mental and physical well-being of the players.
