  • Make them release him he would look great in a Cleveland uniform. We could definitively answer the question if he is good enough to prop up a bad franchise.

  • Didn’t TO screw up his free agency paperwork a while back? The Niners ended up being able to trade him because his agent screwed up when he should have been free to sign anywhere.

  • :lol: :lol:

    Every team abuses the heck out of the IR rules, but I also might just not care that much because the 9ers are such bad offenders.

    The league can give em a cash fine if they want, but even that feels like overkill to me.

    I think a warning letter is fine.

    If he were released, he would be put on waivers, which would mean each team could stake a claim in obverse order of the standings, which means Cleveland would snap him up in a heartbeat.

  • They will just doctor the paperwork to say it was a different injury and not the collarbone

  • It seems pretty much black and white to me. If the NFL makes an exception for the Cheeseheads, then they have set a precedent.

  • Doesn't the NFL have to approve every IR transaction and placement? In that case the NFL would have approved Rodgers placement on IR and already deemed it okay.
