Tampering? 

I am not sure what the tampering rules are but I think tampering only occurs if a FA or his agent meets/talks with a team before they are allowed too. This here is just something the Raiders are saying publicly to the media about a contract and what they would offer.

I'm not sure any more, either, but stuff like this USED to be construed as tampering.

There was actually a report today that he is buying a house in Las Vegas.  Cowherd mentioned it on his show.   Nothing verified of course.  Cowherd also mentioned that Brady and the Patriots have not had contract talks in quite a long time.

There is no tampering because this isn't an official offer from the Raiders. All this is is a tweet that someone has heard that the Raiders are prepared to offer 2 years 60 million. It isn't like the Las Vegas Raiders twitter account said this. Larry Fitzgerald's dad is the one who made the tweet.

It would be tampering if the team where coming out and saying that we are prepared to offer Tom Brady 2 year -  60 M contract.  Tampering rules pretty much prevent the team from even mentioning the name of another team's player in any context when it comes to acquiring free agents.  

 

That said there are 2 things here. 

 

1. Agents and teams have found a way to skirt tampering rules a lot or at the very least break them without getting caught.

2. This information was posted as a rumor by a media type.  Media types can't be punished for tampering.  I think this is sort of another way that agents for big time free agents and teams can sort of skirt the tampering rules a bit.  A member of the team's staff can let it slip (off the record) that the team is interested in a certain free agent.  Media types often don't name their sources but they can basically print out there that the team is interested.  That allows the player's agent to investigate to find out what they would be offering.  

 

Now if the media type named his source within the team they could be in huge trouble.  At the very least the team would have to claim they are a rouge employee and fire them.  But then again a media type that named his sources would be cut off from future inside info, so they won't name their source and a team rep can continue to feed them information like this with management approving (but obviously never saying they approve.)

 

In a sense this story is likely a indirect way of offering Tom Brady a contract.  

 

The only problem is that Tom Brady isn't very motivated by money and the Raiders really arn't that good.  So I doubt he goes and plays for the Raiders, no matter what they offer.

Not to mention, I don't think he will want to be in the same division as KC and Miller/Chubb. 

If he's afraid to face certain other players, he should just retire then.

I hope this happens so that I can see who wins better without the other, Belichick or Brady. Brady's ego is in for a shock this off season, no doubt in my mind. 

I'm taking Belichick all day everyday on this one. Pats went 11 - 5 with Cassel starting.

Peyton did the same too, didn't want the NFC, didn't want to play against the Colts twice, so he chose his division wisely in free agency. If I am Brady, why would I leave the AFC West where I can possibly have a 5-1 or 6-0 record every year? That is half way to a bye week seed most years.

Actually, he didnt want to have to play Eli, is why he chose to stay out of the NFC...and as for playing the Colts, he had actually narrowed it down to Denver and Houston and ended up playing the Colts every season that he was in Denver

Yeah, we all knew that about Peyton/Eli and avoiding the NFC. Plus, when you have a gazillion threads about Brady and the Raiders, I have to repeat myself. I laid out all the Peyton reasons here in his free agency decision plus the reasons I felt Brady will not be in the AFC West. Btw, Peyton did not play the Colts in 2012, just 2013, 2014 and 2015.

 

Here, I just quoted it from another thread:

Personally, I think Brady wants to prove he can win without Bill...and wants the records (Peyton is the only starting QB to win a Super Bowl with multiple teams)

 

He's a little old for proving all that...

    • ...and Trey Burton coming back possibly this week, would they potentially run HInes or maybe even Burton out of the slot at times, with TY and Pascal on the outside? Just trying to think of ways to get our best weapons on the field, and I would hate to MAC lose a ton of reps at TE since he has played so well and Rivers seems to have a nice connection with him.
    • I agree to the nth degree. with this assessment.  JB is a distraction and there is something wierd about his pay, his status, him coming in as an option QB on a 4th down, etc.   If you are trying to develop a QB, what better time than garbage time v the woeful Jets?
    • I would. I'd even say if we were heading into the Superbowl, I'd take Eason over Brissett.  why? The unknown QB can give teams a fit, if that QB steps up to it.  And it sounds like Eason is putting that work in big time.     Now, if the decision would be between Kelly and Brissett, that one for me gets more challenging. I think I'd still go Kelly but the fact that the coaches have him relegated to the PS speaks of less confidence in him than Eason. That said, I think I'd still go Kelly over Brissett.  Not because Brissett is worse than Kelly, but again, teams know Brissett can't or wont force it down field and isn't good at things.  Kelly i think is a much better scheme fit to Riech's scheme than Brissett. 
    • Understandable.  Would you feel the same way, assuming JB and Eason are both healthy, and we were in a playoff hunt?  Meaning that every game is important.    I have nothing against Eason.  But no one can argue that he hasn't been tested in the NFL.  That needs to happen.  The real question is - when?
    • I think you might be overestimating the talent on the field if you are unimpressed with Reich.  There are some head scratchers he calls sometimes especially Hines in short yardage, but I don't think the talent we have on the field right now is going to be the type of squad putting up gaudy offensive numbers.  Another thing, I don't understand is limiting MACs snaps.  He mauls people in the running game and is huge, athletic and had good hands.  I'm guessing his route running is a weakness, but come on.  The dude needs to play a lot. Mack's departure has really hurt this team offensivley IMO.    I have a hard time beleiving that the OLine is not creating opportunities to run the ball more effectively, but I have not watched tape to confirm my belief.   Reich had been a really good offensive coach IMO with all he's had to try to deal with quite a few unexpected issues.   Our personnell choices are pretty limited right now in general.
