No. He was released and was free to sign with anyone.Hasn't he been serving a 10+ game suspension already? Just strange really. It's a shame he couldn't stop yapping on social media.
Of course but because of the threat of exempt list the NFL has basically already suspended him without having to do so.No. He was released and was free to sign with anyone.
Because he is under investigation and that would carry with it going on the exempt list (...and teams needing to pay him) is what most likely deterred GMs from signing him.
Doubt he can win that argument. I don’t know if legally the NFL has to conduct their investigation in a reasonable time. They kinda hit a grey areaI don't care what they do because he won't be coming to NE, but seems he's served over 10 games is what I'm saying, yes.
Your just stating the obvious truth. I said the day he got released that Goodell warned Kraft that he was a dead man walking. Kraft cut ties knowing that AB was toast and he could at least throw up a hail Mary and try and get his money back.
If true... IF true... more vindication for cutting him when they did.
And I am NOT doing this to chum the waters.
The NFLPA should try to get something into the CBA to this effect, as doesn't what happened to AB (not that I'm advocating for that person) show that if all the owners "cooperate" (or if the Commish puts out the word that this guy is going on the exempt list if anyone signs him), a player can be de facto suspended without really being suspended, and still be suspended some more if anyone dares to sign him?What are you advocating? Make him eligible with time already served?
You are assuming the reason he is not playing is because of the threat of going on Goody's exempt list. We believe it to be true but it is not fact.I don't care what they do because he won't be coming to NE, but seems he's served over 10 games is what I'm saying, yes.
