No Draft? No limits on FA?

And what if there’s no draft? “You go back to a system pre-1936 where the NFL is recruiting on college campuses,” NFL executive vice president of communications and government relations Paul Hicks said. “Every team is going to be after Cam Newton. I’m not sure that college football is ready for the NFL to begin recruiting its players.”

That would be interesting having NFL teams recruiting college players. Small market teams would have a tough time getting the superstar players.

It would be trash.

There's a reason why the MLB is in the situation it's in. When you have the league divided between the "Haves and the Have-Nots", then it becomes stale and unexciting.

It would be the worst possible thing for the league.

Won't actually happen, it's a bargaining chip.

But Can't it??? If this stays in the courts and they rule that the NFL is acting as a illegal monopoly wouldn't that force each team to act as an independent entity?

If so then you can't hold a draft or anything because that would be collusion??

The longer this stays in courts, the more of a chance they can rule the future of the NFL based on law, and not common sense.

That is exactly what they want. They feel it restricts players....and it does. When anyone else comes out of college they can be recruited by any employer they want. Whereas the NFL forces the top talent to be on a shitty team for X amount of years. I love the draft and hate what the players are doing but they have a very legit and maybe legal argument to stop the draft.

Also they are going to challenge the Tags which again restricts player movement.

Bottom line every person in America should have the right to work for whomever they want and the players are restricted in that regard esp with no other league paying anywhere near what the NFL does, existing.

    • This rookie class really seems like a group of hungry football players, not just athletes.  Guys like CMC, Samuel, Moton etc.. all seem like they are gym rats with a passion for the game.  Pair them up with this stellar locker room and film rats like Luke and this could be Gettlemans best draft ever.  Give me guys with football intelligence and passion for the game over egotistical  athletic freaks all day. 
    • So you are saying we should ignore all the wrongs of history and the wrongs of present day?  Our country isn't ignoring race.  What you're saying isn't rooted in what the reality is, because when we do look at race, we see how ugly this country is.  Once things are set right, once injustice has been redressed, then I'll be satisfied.  How many times have black people had to start over in this country?  I'm tired of ignoring race, only to have my stuff burned down again and starting over.
    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.
