We will never know the truth in the matter. All we know is the 49ers dispute the claims although it goes against what they stated publically in the past on this matter. My guess is that they did attempt to contact Rosenhaus to do a deal. Their excuse that they were contacting him about a no name WR that was available on the open market right before the trade deadline seems to be a little fishy of an excuse. It could be true, but I doubt it. I will say that Goodell didn't seem to have the goods on 49ers to actually prove they tampered, but I am guessing that their story was transparent enough to allow him to make up a decision.
