    Well, Seattle couldn’t outright release him at this time of the year anyway. Also, things like this probably happen all the time so is it fair or is it not fair if many other people are doing it in all phases (draft, free agency, trades etc)? The only reason we know about it is because Harrison hasn’t exactly been quiet about it which just makes him dumb, his agent is probably ripping him a new one as we speak.

    Problem is you’re never going to trace it. He’s not going to call the packers. His agent will who probably has other clients he can hide behind. Or he tells a friend who tells the team. There’s never really going to be a way to enforce the tampering.
    But its not even tampering. Tampering exists when you are with a team or when free agency isn't open. Snacks was released. He was open to being claimed. Who cares if he talks to teams on where he wants to play?

    Any team could have called his bluffs. The packers are last in the NFC waivers. Any of the Packers potential opponents could have called his bluff and claimed him. Worst case he retires. Even if you have to pay him 1/16 of his salary, it could have been worth it.

    He was scheduled to work out in GB before Seattle signed him. Connecting the dots wouldnt have been hard. The dude is a vet who isn't making much money, if he legit would have retired over playing with a borderline playoff team that's his prerogative. It could have just as easily backfired, but every NFC team had a chance to block it. No idea how anyone could consider it foul.

    It would be illegal for him to talk directly to other teams until he clears waivers and gets released.

    Section 2. Contact: Coaches or any other persons connected with another NFL Club are prohibited from contacting any player placed on waivers until such time as the player is released by the waiving Club.

    Yep. The Packers are doing Harrison a huge favor by allowing him to join the team at this point.

    Yeah I was thinking that because he’s technically still a member of the Seahawks until every team had a chance to claim. He wasn’t a FA.

    Ah. I misread what you wrote. I interpreted what you said as you taking issue with him getting to choose who he wanted to play for in week 16. I get what you’re saying now.

    Nice guy but i don't think he is the same player he was a healthy scratch against a big game against the Rams.
