You can cut a player for conduct issues

Often we hear that you can't cut a player based off conduct issues off the field. J.A. Adande says differently:

The thing is, NFL teams already have all the power they need to ditch the bad character guys. The second paragraph of the standard NFL contract requires the player to "conduct himself on and off the field with appropriate recognition of the fact that the success of professional football depends largely on public respect for and approval of those associated with the game." Later, the team is granted this authority: "If Player has engaged in personal conduct reasonably judged by Club to adversely affect or reflect on Club, then Club may terminate this contract."

It makes you wonder why we're being told from media sources that you can't cut a player because of conduct issues. So who's right?
