I heard a few things around the same time, put them together and got me wondering.
Supposedly congress is going to vote whether to extend unemployment benefits past 99 weeks. And I heard Jeter's grandmother was joking with him about having no job (and contract) for the first time in 15 years.
Do unsigned FA's get unemployment checks? Do they have to submit a report to the unemployment office with all the teams they have been in contact with about getting work?
