Getty Images The Athletic's Kalyn Kahler reported last week that NFL general counsel Jeff Pash wrote in an Oct. 20 memo to club owners, presidents, general managers and attorneys that the NFLPA filed a grievance alleging that teams and the league colluded to prevent fully guaranteed contracts from being offered to players . The basis for the NFLPA's claim is "the fact that no other quarterback or high-profile player has signed a fully guaranteed contract after Browns ' quarterback Deshaun Watson signed his contract last March." The NFLPA contends that fully guaranteed contracts would become the norm for the NFL 's top players because of the Watson deal. The memo alleges that prior to, during and after an Aug. 9 ownership meeting in which the owners met to approve the Denver Broncos sale, there have been discussions among owners, league and teams executives about agreeing not to sign veteran players to lucrative fully guaranteed contracts. Pash added that the NFLPA … [Read more...] about Agent’s Take: Has the NFL been colluding against fully guaranteed contracts? Or is it just an illusion?
Getty Images The Philadelphia Eagles may have defeated the Green Bay Packers 40-33 in Week 12 on "Sunday Night Football," but the Packers came away with perhaps the biggest moral victory possible: the knowledge that their long-term future could be secure with backup and former first round pick quarterback Jordan Love . According to the Eagles' four-time Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay , who has faced Aaron Rodgers 13 times, the Green and Gold have a "bright, bright future" with Love. "As a defense, when A-Rod goes out, we feel great," Slay said on his " Big Play Slay " podcast on Monday. "That's one of the greatest quarterbacks ever, so if he goes out, we have to go out there and really get after it. The D-line gets a little hungrier because they know with a young buck coming in they can get after the quarterback since A-Rod makes a lot of checks and communication at the line of scrimmage, that's hard to sack. Young buck [Jordan Love] comes in and actually does a … [Read more...] about Eagles’ Darius Slay says the Packers have a ‘bright, bright future’ with Jordan Love
USATSI Josh Allen has been a winner on and off the football field, making it no surprise the Buffalo Bills have become the model of consistent success since the franchise drafted him five years ago. Not only have the Bills won the AFC East in consecutive seasons, but Allen has transformed into one of the best quarterbacks in the game. The Bills have the second-best record in the NFL since the start of the 2020 season, while Allen's 116 total touchdowns are the most in the NFL over that span. Allen is off to a historic start to his career, as his 163 total touchdowns trail only Dan Marino for the most in a player's first five seasons in NFL history .

Getty Images And just like that, Johnathan Abram has a new home in the NFL . On Wednesday, the safety was claimed off waivers by the Seattle Seahawks , according to NFL Media . This comes off the heels of the Green Bay Packers releasing the former Las Vegas Raiders first-round pick just 20 days after they claimed him off of waivers. The 27th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft played just one snap on defense and 28 special teams snaps during his first two games with Green Bay against the Dallas Cowboys and the Tennessee Titans in Weeks 10 and 11. He was inactive for Sunday night's Packers-Eagles game in Week 12. He made a couple of tackles playing for Packers special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia, who was his former interim head coach with the Raiders. "Obviously, that was a little bit of surprise, first of all, that he got cut and that he ends up here with us in Green Bay," Bisaccia said when Abram joined the team, via Sports Illustrated.
