The Falcons officially signed Cousins to a four-year deal worth up to $180 million on the first day of official free agency, two days after his agent, Mike McCartney, announced on social media that Cousins and Atlanta had agreed to terms.

"While the policy permits clubs to engage with and negotiate all aspects of an NFL player contract with the certified agent of any prospective unrestricted free agent during the two-day negotiating period, any direct contact between the player and an employee or representative of the club is prohibited," the NFL said in a statement. "This includes discussion of travel arrangements or other logistical matters, which the club acknowledges took place with regard to these three players."

During Cousins' opening news conference, he indicated he had spoken with the team's head trainer before 4 p.m. on March 13, when the new league year was set to open.

With the GM/coach they have now, I see a pair of dudes who have already set their team back years.

Is it really a big deal though? I don’t really understand the NFL and its “tampering rules”. They have more than college.
Meanwhile, they never punish teams for allowing players to beat the literal frick out of GFs, wives, pedestrians at bars, etc.
frick off, NFL.

5th round pick. No way they can recover from this. No way. Might as well be a death penalty. NFL really sending a message.. "not a big deal".
