This group of league "investigators" will continue to closely monitor the situation.
Bob McNair's Ox in the Ditch comment approves this message.
So what if some teams have been contacting players? Don't they have the right to break ranks with the other teams if they choose? I don't see any legal problem there.
It would seem that players and teams could easily get around this rule by communicating through a 3rd party that does not "represent" them.
For example, players have hired noncurrent NFL coaches to workout on their own. They could easily act "by-the-by" as the "3rd party." I can see many creative scenarios that are going on.......generated from both sides.
So anybody know if the Texans were one of the teams that stuck their collective neck out and atleast contacted a couple guys ? I sure hope they made an effort to talk to atleast a couple postion guys they need ?
It would be incredibly hard for the NFL to track whether players and coaches have been communicating with each other considering the different ways they can all get in touch. The NFL can't monitor phone calls or text messages, much less Skype or personal e-mail's going back and forth. I would be more surprised if the players and coaches weren't communicating in some way.
Just as is the case with Cushing's tweet about flying to convince Cromartie that he should become a Texan (I doubt that he would do this without knowing that the Texans had an interest.......remember the very short lockout break where all sorts of communications both direct and indirect could have occured...........and the owners knew that there would at least be a chance of the lockout being reinstated)
The Texans did nothing.
Nice guys finish last and if you ain't cheatin you ain't trying .
What's breaking about this? Still no football.
The "breaking news" part was expressly sarcastic.
Kinda tricked me into thinking something bigger.
