Just because it hasn't been done before doesn't mean its the right thing to do. Comparing Lynch to Aldon is stupid. Lynch may just be an idiot who got caught. Aldon went VOLUNTARILY the team did not make him go. I'm pretty sure the CBA prevents that.
Your last statement about Seattle tells me your more worried about wins then the health of a human being.
Aldon: "Mr. York?"
Jed: "Yes Aldon?"
Aldon: "I am going to suspend myself and check into an alcohol rehab clinic."
Jed: "Really Aldon? Right now during the season? You'll miss a lot of games."
Aldon: "Now is as good a time as any."
Jed: "I didn't realize you were an alcoholic. I thought you just made a poor decision."
Aldon: "No its much deeper than that, sorry to say, I am."
Jed: "Wow. That's really noble of you Aldon. I don't think any player has ever done this before in the history of the NFL."
Aldon: "Yeah, well, I am a very noble guy."
Jed: "Don't worry, we won't tell anybody, and we'll happily pay you for your noble cause."
Aldon: "Gee, thanks. That's nice of you."
I'm sure it happened just like that.
Actually, it probably went something like...
Jed York: Hey Aldon, check yourself into alcoholism rehab. If you do so, we'll continue to pay your full salary and are behind you all the way
Either way, he still voluntarily checked himself into rehab
