Andrew Luck Question #3289

I know if Luck declares we can try to start getting a contract done before the draft and even have him signed but are the Panthers allowed to contact him right now to try to influence him to declare or is that tampering?

Sorry if this has been asked but I am not going through every Luck thread.

That to me sounds like tampering. He's technically not in the draft as of yet.

that goes against ncaa rules actually. unless he declares if that happens he cannot go back to school and would make it a bigger mess.

I could be wrong tho

As JR so plainly, succinctly, adamantly and unequivocally stated during the presser, there will be no contract negotiations until the new CBA is in place.

The official drop dead date for the current CBA is March 1. The draft takes place well after than in late April. Without a bargaining agreement in place how does one negotiate a contract?

The short answer is no.

Can't contact him until he declares himself eligable...

I feel like if nothing else it would violate some NCAA rule that could get him in trouble if he does decide to come back, and I'm sure there is some NFL policy against it. I would also be wary of trying to get a contract worked up now anything could happen between now and draft day and it's just too risky.

Could they contact him at all even if they don't discuss money?

wouldn't that be the same as contacting an agent.....

which I believe is against ncaa rules.

Would give you pie but don't know what happened to it and I need to spread more rep around.

It's kind of weird that they can't even contact him.

What happens if they run into each other at the local Wal-Mart?

Is Hurney just suppose to close his eyes, plug his ears, turn his head and sing loudly until Luck leaves?

1. Luck has until January 14 to declare.

2. He cannot be contacted until he declares.

3. Unlike the NBA, once you declare, there's no going back.

4. Like I stated above, the Panthers will not negotiate until a new CBA is in place, from JR's mouth directly.

Therefore, when Luck is drafted, there will be no contract in place because the CBA, which governs contract negotiations and conditions, will no longer exists after March 1.
