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.
