(Source) Ted Wells is gonna need a bigger retainer. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tells PFT that the league has advised teams that potential violations of the rules regarding the three-day negotiating period will be investigated via memo sent Monday.

“The memo makes clear that we will look into any potential violations of the rules,” Aiello said. The question becomes how will the NFL look into potential violations?  Starting with the Sunday news that defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will sign with the Dolphins, the floodgates opened, with multiple teams linked to multiple players.

Seahawks cornerback Byron Maxwell has said he’s going to Philly.  So is running back Frank Gore.  Meanwhile, Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin reportedly is going to the Chiefs. The list goes on and on, with plenty of teams doing exactly what the annual list of pre-free agency “thou shalt nots” says they shalt not do. While it’s impossible for negotiations to not result in offers and, in turn, contracts, the league’s goal is discretion.  In past years, teams have indeed been discreet.

God I love the NFL. Just so incredibly dumb and contradictory at all times. I know there is a group of people out there that despise the NFL for all of their fuck ups but at this point I can’t help but laugh. They’re the moron who can’t get out of his own way.

It’s like when the NFL got serious about head injuries yet still ran a weekly “Jacked Up” segment, or when Goodell pretended to care about Domestic Violence and hid the Ray Rice tape from the public. No one is better than you NFL. It’s almost like Goodell walks into his office every day, sits at his desk, tells his secretary to clear his schedule, then spends the next 10 hours trying to pat his head while he rubs his tummy. One day you’ll get it Rog, one day!
