There was a reason New England basiclly unloaded him for nothing. The dude is stealing money by getting any NFL salary

Pursueing a dream of track stardom vs a career making a lot of money....hmmmm.

If he puts off football for too long, it will pass him by athlete or not. Add in hes missing out on learning a playbook or building any chemistry with his team,  he will already be far behind. By then someone else may have proven themselves worth keeping and Demps is out a shot. It also raises the question on what if the olympics roll around again and he chases the dream again?

On top of all of that, why does he get special treatment? Why is this staff going to give this kid a pass yet everyone else is held to a completely different standard. Even proven vets who usually get the leeway have their toes on the line. Youre telling me a track star whos done nothing in the nfl is worth allowing him to miss a substantial amount of time while you hold real football players to a higher expectations?

Let him go run track and look for someone else. Guy would be relegated to stictly kick returns at best without knowing the playbook. Even returns have plays and schemes to install and learn so theres a chance he might not contribute if/when he does return.

I think some of you would be surprised at the amount of money he can make in track.  He may even be taking a cut to play football.
simply not true

Exactly... Who would sponser him and pay big time dough to never be seen on the winners podium? He would make more money at the bottom end of a NFL roster.

Track salaries are low.  Appearance money and sponsor money can pile up.  Demps was recently rated in the top 10, so he'll get his... and if he's a two sport guy, those moneys go way up.

Sponsorship

    Sponsorship is a major source of income for professional track runners. At the bottom end of the scale, runners may simply receive kit or shoes from a sponsor. If they show promise, they may receive cash awards, which grow progressively larger with success. The website Inside Higher Ed reported that one female track runner who qualified for the Olympic Games was only able to secure $10,000 in sponsorship compared to top female runners who were able to command $150,000 to $200,000.

Performance

    Track runners can earn additional income by achieving victory in a competition or breaking records. Inside Higher Ed reported that the award for winning the women's long jump at the 2005 IAAF World Championships was $60,000. The Diamond League is a series of track meetings that take place over the summer season. News agency Reuters reported that the promoters' statement of prize money for the 2010 series was $6.6 million, plus more in promotional fees

the 100 meters is the main event in track. Demps can make a few million running track and field especially if he is in several events.

Who cares?  It's a free country.  It's not like we are missing out on Bo Jackson.

Dexter Lee came in 3rd.  He's got a nice haul of gold for Jamaica.

Since most of you have never done anything on an elite level, it's no surprise you don't understand. Patience.

youre missing where his role on the Olympic team is as an alternate. He's not even a top 4 guy in his own country, let alone the world. There's not much marketability there.

So lets say he gets 2x as much as the woman at 20,000. And let's say he wins 3 events (unlikely considering his past performances). He's still making half the money he would being on an NFL roster during the season.

You'll never get it if you don't add in that race sponsors pay to be able to put words like "Silver Medalist" and "United States" to their promo... and the shoe sponsors... and the drink sponsors...

except Demps isn't the guy to do that. He has one medal to his name and it's from a race that he didnt even run in.
