The reason I bring this iup is because I am wondering if this scenario could any effect on the Branch situation. Now I don't know all the facts, but the way I "think" it happened was like this. 49ers gave TO permission to seek a trade. Him and his agent set up a trade for a late round pick with the eagles. The 49ers set up a trade for him in exchange for a second with Balt. Then TO fights it. There is some legal ramifications about the fact that the 49ers gave him permission and such. Basically, my question is this. Why did the 49ers have to take back the trade and trade him to the Eagles for a crappy pick instead of the Ravens for a good pick. And with the thread talking about how BorgAss said Branch has something up his sleave, I am wondering if it somehow the same type of thing that happened with TO?? Anyone know the details on that?
