NFLPA released the offer for everyone to see when the agent sent them the offer.


Because Andre Holmes couldn't tell other teams what the Bills offered him?


Actually Agents were warned yesterday that if they release contract details with other teams then they could be suspended...never knew that rule be a reporter mentioned that because of all this

Kinda ironic that this occurred right after they warned agents.

This seems to be confusing. So nflpa accidentally put Roberts signing with the bills but he never did and it was reported?


Agent sent contract offer to NFLPA

NFLPA thought it was signed and filed it

Media and other teams have access to file and can see the file

They weren't warned that they can't give information to other teams. They were told they can't give the information to the media. Why would the NFLPA, who represents players and wants players to get the most money possible, want to block agents from having a tool to bargain for their clients?

They're allowed tell other teams what the player is getting offered. That's a fundamental aspect of negotiating, to be able to use leverage from other sources to get your client more money.

The Bills didn't spend more money because of this leak. There's a reason the Bills sent the offer and he didn't sign it in the first place. The Bills don't deserve any compensation. The person who leaked it should face consequences of some sort for their mistake, but that's as far as it goes.

2 million doesn't effect the Bills cap to any serious degree and it certainly doesn't effect Pegula's bottom line. $2 million to him is like 2 bucks to us.

I've read more about this non-story than I could have ever fathomed to read on my own.

Good special teams player especially on punt coverages. He was responsible for many of King's punts from hitting into the endzone.
