Weinberg Assailed For Negotiating Tactics Leading To Sanders' Signing With Broncos
Published March 17, 2014
DEAL REALLY DONE? Sanders yesterday said, "That entire situation is a business ordeal that some people will turn into a personal matter." He added, "There was no handshake. There was no kind of agreement ... we were close to a deal, but it wasn’t anything official just yet. In terms of shopping around, we didn’t shop around. Teams were still calling." In K.C., Terez Paylor notes the Chiefs "could file a grievance" with the NFL and "attempt to have the deal voided." However, "all indications are that the Chiefs will not go that route" (K.C. STAR, 3/17). THE MMQB's Peter King writes, "What, really, can the Chiefs do? If a contract wasn’t signed, I don’t see that there’s any recourse other than to say they’ll never deal with a Weinberg client again." King: "If it’s true that Weinberg had a verbal deal and went to Denver instead, that’s not right. But there’s a reason the league honors only signed contracts and not verbal agreements" (MMQB.SI.com, 3/17).
