Appealing to "NFL history" is not only ambiguous, but meaningless. There are just as many hands off owners in NFL history as there are hands on.
The reality is we're still talking about your feelings, not facts.
The Athletic posted a pretty thorough behind the scenes story about the process that led up to Sam Darnold becoming a Panther. In that article, there were two names that were barely mentioned.
One of them was David Tepper.
The other one was Deshaun Watson.
Now I know David Tepper is sitting next to you in the room and all, but even with that I don't think you have better sources than The Athletic does.
You can hope all you want that David Tepper interferes and acquires your favorite player, but everything that's based in actual reality is pointing in the other direction.
And frankly, I think we're all better served talking about the things that are actually happening than things we wish would happen.
