    any of you guys heard any more about this apparent issue we have had with contracts?

    it is taken from Profootballtalk so not entirely reliable haha..but still,wondering if others have heard more about it.


    Robert Quinn passes physical, but contract needed more work

    Posted by Mike Florio on August 5, 2011, 8:03 AM EDT

    Thursday was somewhat eventful for Rams first-rounder Robert Quinn, who generally has had an eventful couple of weeks.

    In recent days he has changed agents, been sued by his former agent, and signed a first-round rookie contract. But he hadnít practiced because he hadnít passed a physical.

    On Thursday, he passed the physical. But on Thursday his contract was disapproved by the league office. It appears that whatever flaw appeared in his contract has been rectified.

    The disapproval of the Quinn deal comes in the wake of a slew of undrafted free agent contracts signed by the Rams being disapproved because they gave the team TV and radio rights.

    A quick google unearthed this:
    After signing 24 undrafted free agents Friday, the contracts were disapproved by the NFL. By the next day, the problem was corrected.

    Profootballtalk.com said, "We're told, the contracts contained provisions regarding TV and radio appearances. Under the new labor deal, that's permitted in veteran contracts, but not in rookie contracts."

    Sounds like an honest mistake that was corrected quickly.

    Rookies can't talk to the media but veterans can?

    This type of thing is to be expected with a new labor deal full of new provisions. It sounds like issues can be remedied quickly, so no worries.
