Pats-Dolphins deal questioned?
 
http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/rumors

The NFL Players Association is concerned that the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins violated the Collective Bargaining Agreement while putting together the recent trade of receiver Wes Welker and has asked the NFL Management Council for an explanation, according to a source.

"They may have violated the CBA rule that says one club can't offer the player's former team anything that would [sway] that team from matching their offer," the source said. "Anti-collusion [rule], that's another thing that may come into play."

The source added that the NFLPA's interest in the matter stemmed from complaints made by Welker's agent, Vann McElroy, regarding the devaluation of his client because of possible violations.

Interesting, wonder if this will go anywhere and if so, where?

FYI I found this under rumors on yahoo but there must be at least some truth to it.

A developing situation???

If so, I hope this hurts the Pats a lot, they have been acting like a mad man this off-season, and its not because they acquired Donte Stallworth, I just don't like the Pats, but the Stallworth thing is another reason why.

I hope both teams get screwed over.

With them picking up Stallworth and Wes Welker and all ready having Reche Caldwell what happens to Chad Jackson?

i hope we can get our 2nd back and they get welker back :) :)

If the NFLPA declares that the Collective Bargaining Agreement was violated, does Welker return to Miami and the Pats get their second rounder back?

Patiots always seem to do something underhanded. Its why I love them.

I thought that the owners of the Pats and Dolphins got together and made this deal? If so this is another of example of the Players Association sticking its nose where it doesn't belong. Welker got paid and the Dolphins got picks, I really don't see an injustice here.
