    I read that yesterday. What a dumbass. Probably the top senior TE prospect heading into the season, gets kicked off a team for agent "interactions" and now he can't even be drafted because he didn't file his paperwork properly.

          How do you file for the draft incorrectly? It's the single biggest moment of your career.

            I need to confirm this, but I didn't even think there can be a supplemental draft without the CBA either...


            And the problem was that he DIDN'T file. He was a senior and figured he was fine, but since he was dismissed from the team, he has a year of eligibility left. That means he needed to file paperwork for it and didn't.

              Can he sign with an FCS team and not lose a year and come to the next draft? Or will the NCAA stop him from doing so?

                I believe it is too late for that.

                  if a new CBA is done I would give up a 3rd or 4th to get him.

                    Wow!!! Has a player ever been out of football for two whole seasons going into a draft? Besides Maurice Clarett that is.

                      Probably was a 5th, now I doubt he even makes a team

                        Well, once the CBA expires on March 4th (assuming the start of the new league year isn't pushed back a few weeks), the NFL has three options:

                        1) Lock the players out until a CBA is done. In this situation, the supplemental draft will almost certainly not happen.

                        2) Declare an impasse and unilaterally declare work-rules (which would basically the be NFL's last, best proposal to the players). This would be litigated in the courts, because it's potentially an anti-trust violation, but a supplemental draft could happen under these circumstances.

                        3) Allow the old rules to continue on into the new league year, which would allow for a supplemental draft. However, this won't happen because it would: a) create sheer chaos in free agency when a record number of folks become free agents overnight with the status of the franchise and transition tags are in dispute and b) give the union absolutely no incentive to actually negotiate a new deal.

                        #3 won't happen, #2 will only happen if the league and the union absolutely refuse compromise on key issues, and #1 is the most probable outcome.

                        With any luck though, we get a CBA well before the supplemental draft is supposed to happen, but it's a little too early to count on one happening this summer.

                          I wouldn't be surprised if the NFL works to remedy this issue and grants this dummy a special one-time exception in light of the fact of the strange circumstances and the impending lockout.

                            what do you expect out of a kid who has a clown for a dad like this?

                              I find it amazing that you could mess this up so badly... If there weren't enough red flags around his character/intelligence already, he just added the biggest flag you will ever see to the collection.


                              Props to BK on the sig!
