If Branch seriously some how wins this greivance, and the Pats are forced to trade their best reciever to a divison rival for a 2nd round pick, I believe the NFL will eventually fall apart. In no way should the league be able to tell what a team has to take for a guy under contract. Now guys who are under contract will be able to force teams to trade him, with the NFL establishing the compensation. Then whose to say a loophole cant be discovered where teams say an unrestricted free agent cant be overpayed by another team because a guy with similar stats was payed x amount, will the NFL say that that player has to play for his original team under the money payed to players of simialr stature. Basically meaning a team cant overpay in FA. This just does not seem legal. P.s. Screw mangini and Curtis martin part II Deion.
