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...

    • Is this a joke? Lol Gates is as washed as they come. He can barely run anymore, strong pass. I’d take Walker over him.
    • More than me enjoying...  I know YOU enjoy them.   As for April, what happens is more info leaks out.   Clearly some of that (most if that?) is a smoke screen.   But sometimes good info gets out.   About guys like Mixon and Sweet and the big Miss State DL grabbed by Tennessee.  That information is always helpful.  Just things to keep an eye out for....   The key is having fun and don’t box yourself in!  
    • I just don't feel like anything changes come April. You know what the remaining needs are for the colts and where prospects were most likely land.   Strange. Draft calculate said it was equal value.    I mentioned Higgins can be a reach, but the draft is unpredictable. More teams go after Ts then IOL and there are a lot of good Ts in this draft. It's either Hurts or Gordon. I'm just not a fan of the other QBs and I feel we can still use his level of athletism instead of just having the QB ride the bench. Oline depth is a big need. We really don't have options if god forbid someone on the line gets hurt. Breeland is still a good option and we still have Doyle and Allie-Cox   Glad you enjoy my Mocks!
    • There is an Antonio Gates article in Yahoo Sports, says in considered signing with the Colts in 2019.  I know his age is up there, 39, will be 40 at the start of the season.  It mentioned that he has retired mindset but maybe Ballard and Rivers can sway him to give it one more year.  With the Rivers to Gates was one the best connections.  He could be a valuable 3rd receiver for the Colts and Rivers.  I think drafting a TE in the 2nd or 3rd round should be considered as well.
