Awesome2 Posted February 28, 2006 Share Posted February 28, 2006 OK, hypothetical situation: Clinton Portis gets killed in a car accident tomorrow while riding with Ladell Betts. Betts is killed also. We are left without a real running back to speak of (Cartwright doesn't exist) Say at the time Dan Synder is at the combine in Indianapolis developing a man crush on Reggie Bush. Danny loves Reggie and Reggie loves Danny. But Snyder doesn't have a high enough pick to get Reggie, he doesn't even have a 1st round pick. Snyder decides to call the Texans and offer them $20 million or something along those lines to "buy" the rights to the number 1 pick so he can get Reggie Bush. Give them a 6th round pick in a straight up trade for their 1st, helped along with a few brief cases full of cash. That would just be an extreme example. Say Joe Gibbs and Al Saunders are in love with Vernon Davis and absolutely have to have him, threatening to both retire if we are unable to obtain him. Could Snyder call up the Jets owner and say, "OK, guys, you're going to give me the number 4 overall pick, we're going to give you Patrick Ramsey and $15 million". Would this be legal? Could we get in trouble with the league over this? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
