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.

The only tampering going on is the media baiting fans. News sells and now with all these free agent QBs and social media exploding, they are selling every story and possibility to the public lol. He isnt leaving NE.

Good reliable sports news used to be what people wanted. Now we are being fed tmz quality news by what should be the most reputable sports information sources. Damn capitalism...

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.

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'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...

    • LOL, this thread to a huge turn off topic....   Back on topic (Blackmon being a good run defender).....   If you watch any of his games, you know he's a great run defender. I'd recommend staring with the 2019 PAC12 Championship game vs Oregon. The very first play, Blackmon levels the WR who catches the ball behind the LOS...., and I mean totally Mack Truck's him. Poor guy is laying on the ground holding his ribs. I've linked it below, timed right before the play for ease...   It's why I say, to me, he projects as a well rounded stud SS, not a FS. If you watch the game (I've watched 4 of his games thus far) or others, he's clearly better playing closer the LOS than he is roaming/lurking, or covering deep. He was moved to S after some pretty bad years at CB. And add in the fact that Utah's D is one of the most "man" oriented Ds (very unlike the zone we play), to me personally, everything screams SS.    
    • I love Arians making it but hate Brady making it. As long as colts are there(and win). I’d be stoked!
    • I look at AVG honestly most of all. The Colts were top 10 in AVG (lowest average gain per rush).   I'm familiar with what DVOA is, and follow FO frequently. I'd point out that they ranked the Colts 4th in rush D DVOA in 2018, while rating the pass D 20th.    In 2019, given our anemic O, soft zone D, and success against the run (both past and present), why wouldn't everyone throw more against us lol...    In short, rationally, you don't go from 4th to 19th in a year without substantial injury or personnel turnover. We only fell from 6th to 9th in AVG from 2018 to 2019. This is why I say take it with a grain of salt.
    • LOVE THE OPTIMISM! And here I thought I was being bold by predicting the Colts going 12-4.
    • First five(5) carries, Taylor will eclipse 100 yds easy.
