We have all heard the fact that Jerry Reese (GM of the Giants) was questioned and answered publicly that he had discussions about McGahee. The rules state that free agency period starts the 2nd of March and that teams are supposed to not have trade disccussions till then. Most teams still have "chats" within each other and the league usually looks the other way when it comes down to it... but thats because its all matter of factly and not out in the open.
The rule is a team cannot say ANYTHING about another player from a different team that is under contract. Well this New GM has made a boo-boo and opened his mouth.
Usually when files are charged nothing can really be proven and the league does nothing about it. Last year NE filed against the Jets and lost thier case about Deion Branch. But this is out and the open and documented..
The only time I remember a team compensated for tampering was the Bill Belicheck, NE vs. Jets first round compensation.
Does anyone know the rules in what compensation could be had or fined for the Giants, and do the Bills get a claim in compensation?
