Three Day Window Results in Deals? NFL Only One Surprised

The NFL started a three day window prior to the free agent signing date to eliminate tampering. Now that agents started leaking information to the press, the NFL wants to put a halt to it.

What. A. Surprise.

Seriously, who thinks of this stuff? Who didn’t think teams would be tampering? Teams want to get a jump on signing players, and players want to get their money as quickly as possible. Add in the media who can’t get enough of the NFL and it makes for a fun situation for the no-fun-league.

The league warned the teams to put a halt to announcements until Tuesday. That’s how come you’ve only heard RUMINT on who’s getting signed, but other than the Frank Gore deal, the signings all appear legitimate. Yeah, Gore pulled out of his deal with the Eagles, and he’s probably headed to Indianapolis. I thought Gore and Philadelphia were a bad matchup anyway.

One more thing: If you’re Darrelle Revis, why would you even entertain coming back to the Jets? Other than JetsMedia up your ass, there’s no reason to do it … if you like that nonsense. $12M for a year is enormous change. I’d keep going back to the Patriots just to get a chance to win. A real chance, not what JetsMedia says you have.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
