    Imagine Brady watching Brees throw to Thomas, Cook and possibly Brown.

    Meanwhile Brady’s chucking to Meyers who is dropping easy balls hitting him in the numbers while we all say “Hey, even with that, not bad for UDFA”

    Clear him with the NFL, who acts as their own “court of law.” Obviously, they’ll need to clear him in order to allow him to play.

    Neither Elliot nor Roethlisberger were charged by the police, and they both received suspensions.

    I’ve enjoyed your thoughts on the matter, but the idea that there are 31 other teams who are just sitting back without signing him is silly. He’s obviously been blackballed and the league is taking their time reaching a conclusion.

    Payton wore a Goodell clown shirt. I don’t think the league will do the Saints any favors. He will go on the exempt list as soon as they would have signed him and I’m sure NO knew that.

    I asked for the source of people claiming the opposite for months now. Nobody is providing any, so until proven wrong I will proceed with this opinion. YMMV.

    A suspension can only be sat out -- even as a FA -- if it was actually handed down. As long as AB doesn't land on the exempt list or receives some kind of specific ruling he is free to practice and play upon signing.

    Once he is on the list -- or officially suspended -- obviously the games missed due to that might be taken into consideration.

    He’s effectively been blackballed by the league and has sat out an entire year. I’m not sure why you think the NFL wouldn’t consider that once they’re done playing kangaroo court. Having a primo talent on the field is better for the game and for business.

    Not sure why you keep repeating that as if it’s some kind of gospel. The NFL doesn’t care about that. A certain suspension served at the beginning of 2016 proves the NFL doesn’t have that as a first priority.

    When did Brady miss 3 months prior to that suspension being handed down? But you’re right about one thing. For being billionaires, they are certainly some stupid businessmen.

    A pre-suspension suspension, if you will.

    So somebody signing AB could be helping him by getting the NFL to sh!t or get off the pot.

    I don't think the NFL sees any difference financially having Brown playing versus not having him.

    When all is said and done I expect him to get a 6 game suspension that will get reduced to 4. Or maybe 4 to 2. But this entire thing has been way too high profile and his social media presence the definition of conduct detrimental for the league to just put their hands up and say "lol, all good".

    I don't necessarily agree with it mostly because of the entire civil suit angle that is involved and got it all rolling. But in the end AB lashing out on IG, txt msgs or Twitter is all on him.

    I also think you are overthinking the "prime talent" angle. There are many superstars in the league and new ones rise up every year. I am not sure one of them being kept off the field -- who also ends up a volatile person -- does anything to the bottomline.
