    NFLPA looking into Cowboys’ direct dealing with players

    On Wednesday, NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo pointed out a dynamic that the Dallas Cowboys haven’t tried all that hard to hide: Their propensity for cutting out the middleman and dealing directly with players who are represented by agents.

    Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the NFL Players Association views the situation as “not good,” and currently is doing its due diligence before taking any official action and/or issuing any formal statement.

    Probably comes from the Zeke holdout. The gift that keeps on giving.

    I have no doubt that the genesis of this came from Rocky Arceneaux and his group. More bad decisions coming from an inexperienced group that doesn't know what they're doing or realize what they've now started.

    Unless Zeke changes agents, I'm not sure whether or not a deal can now get done in Dallas. I think things have just taken a really ugly turn.

    I love what someone commented for the second linked story, Report: Cowboys have a habit of circumventing agents:

    Bob. Just Bob. says:

    The owners are selfish and only care about theirs and the team’s inerests.

    Agents, on the other hand, are humanitarians doing public service work on behalf of their client, the player.

    "Humanitarians"

    Let Zeke go. Just pick up fat CJ Anderson and let’s go to the NFC Championship game. We’ve seen it before.

    I don't know the fine print of the rules here but I don't think an organization is obligated to deal with an agent. I imagine it is up to the client to refrain from dealing with the organization and allowing the agent to handle matters. A simple, "talk to my agent" from the client should suffice.

    It probably came from the comment I heard that if Jerry could just sit down with Elliott one on one for a few minutes they could probably come to an agreement and work something out.

    I don’t recall if that came from Cowboys front office or media?

    I think Anderson signed with the Lions.

    But as far as I know, Jay Ajayi is still out there. I'd definitely kick the tires on him.

    I don't know of any other free agent running backs out there that have a Super Bowl ring and three 200-yard games in a single season.

    We could go to war with Pollard, Ajayi and Alf.

    I think a committee like that could get us through. But give me Chunn as my third guy over Morris.

    McKinnon is damaged goods. That knee is going to put him on IR yet again. At least doctors have proclaimed Ajayi healthy.

    Not sure why that would be illegal. Players are allowed to represent themselves so its always worth a shot!

    Because they're not "allowed to represent themselves" when they have hired an agent. It's either/or, not both.

    That kind of seems like a dumb rule doesn’t it?
