Explain to me how Oakland can talk with Lynch and not be hammered for tampering. Lynch, though retired, technically is still Seattle's and he is not a free agent. At least I don't believe he is.

That is a fair question unless they said they were talking to him about a coaching position. He would have to stay retired for 2 years to be free. So I don't really get their angle with him.

Because Lynch does not have an active contract, so technically he currently doesn't belong to a team.  When a player retires, they are moved to the Inactive list.

 

While he isn't a Free Agent, he's not on an Active roster.  It's a gray area.

"Lynch officially retired last May with two years remaining on his contract with the Seahawks, so if he indeed files for reinstatement, Seattle would own his rights upon his return." "And, since he’s still under contract, any contact by the Raiders would be impermissible unless they were given consent by Seattle themselves."

The Raiders haven't been in contact with Lynch, directly.

Passing on Carson Wentz could also turn out to be a disaster for the Browns

Passing on a quarterback that has proven nothing is a bad thing?

When you have less than nothing, yep.

Hahaha,,,,

 

Alex Smith's career could still potentially outlast Carson Wentz', and the statistical likelihood that Carson Wentz starts as many games as Alex Smith already has is actually very low.

 

But go on about how much you hate Smith, and continue to praise a quarterback yet to prove that he can put together more than a couple drives.

Sure and I could potentially be the prince of Canada.

 

What does any of this have anything to do with Alex Smith?  Pull your head out of your ass.
