    Jerry would have to convince the Lions to release his rights.

    Megatron could come off the sofa and be be the Cowboys best WR.

    Maybe Jerry can solve world hunger and bring peace to the Middle East while he's at it.

    Lions are hot right now going into the playoffs. Megatron retired too early.

    He would get a chance to go to the Super Bowl without the grind of the regular season.

    Give the Lions a 7th for his rights. Technically they would have to release his rights and Jerry would have to compensate them later.

    Oh, I bet John Mara is just salivating at the idea of Jerry doing this level of violation...

    I don't think it is against the rules but Mara would try to make a new rule.

    lol, that would be a huge rule violation, what you are suggesting is circumventing the trade deadline. In essence, Detroit releases him, knowing we'd pick him up and later in the offseason, we compensate them...

    besides, it would never work, some team would claim him just to keep him from going to us. Happened with Deion Sanders in 2001 when he was retired, there was talk that Oakland wanted him, so Washington released him and San Diego claimed him to keep him away from Oakland.

    The claiming process as you described is the reason there does not have to be a specific rule against it.

    In this situation, the team claiming him would have to take on his salary which was about 18M. A team can't do that just to thwart another team.

    If you watch all of the trades around draft time, you'll notice an occasional trade that does not make sense. They're usually trades involving mid/late round picks. Many people believe the reason for some of these odd trades is because teams agreed to some other favor previously and work it out at draft time. Two times the Patriots have swapped picks in the 6th/7th with another team and no other compensation was involved (i.e. One team just gave away draft value).
