    NFL | League could review transition-player process
    Tue, 21 Mar 2006 14:17:16 -0800

    The Associated Press reports Minnesota Vikings OG Steve Hutchinson and his agent, Tom Condon, might have turned the NFL's "transition tag" term into a matter to review. Hutchinson, who was the Seattle Seahawks' All-Pro transition player, officially became a Minnesota Viking on Tuesday, March 21, in a deal that could pay him $49 million over seven years, with $16 million guaranteed. However, the way in which they got there could prompt the league in to review the transition-player process after the apparent loophole that Condon used to maximize Hutchinson's worth. "I don't think it's a loophole as much as a utilization of the rules," Condon said Monday, March 20. "The rule is that anything not prohibited is allowed."

    Close the poison pill loophole before it bites us in the a$$ on a player we want to keep down the road!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    No matter what they do there will always be a way to bend the rules or find a loophole.
