View Full Version : Can a team essentially steal another teams drafted player?

In the NFL is there a situation in which if a player holds out on their team that another team can give them a contract? Or do they have to get traded/re-enter the draft next year if they want a different team?

I ask because i was a huge fan of amukamara and think he's going to be a shutdown corner and the cowboys disowned every chance they had to get him. But he's holding out on the giants and if there were any chance of him going to a non nfc-east team that would be an early christmas for me haha

nah dude the team still owns the right to their contracts when they're holding out, so unless they get traded or cut they have to sit and pay a fine 4 every game they miss until an agreement is reached.
