Wells is widely known in the Cowboys organization?

ding, ding, ding.... we just discovered team number 2 that Deion was talk'en abouts.

Clearly had to be the Jets and Cowboys.... just as we guessed.

So funny, first loud mouty Deion spills it and now Crabtree's loud mouth Cousin chims in.

The only way this holdout makes sense to me is that some team or teams have somehow indicated to Crabtree that they are willing to meet his price.
just wear this and stencil in " Cause we sure don't" on the back.

Hey Amp, you should have made the douche bag aware that unless the NFL got solid proof, there would be no investigation. The niners had to give the NFL some kind of proof before the NFL would even look into it. You can't just claim tampering and have the NFL look into it.
WestCoastOffensive offends me.......putz.

At least most of the dudes on that forum were willing to entertain the thought that the Jets could have tampered.

At this point, I think it is pretty much accepted that in order for Craptree to hold out this long and now change his phone number, he knows 1 or 2 teams have said they would pay more than the 9ers. It's really the only reason for this ongoing soap opera.

I think a great majority now recognize that Craptree is all about his stat's and robbing some team for huge money before he steps on the field.

Yeah.... this guy has a passion to play football, NOT!
we really need to take away all of this jerk's leverage. Deion said 2 teams are willing to pay him and I think we busted one in the Jets we need to hire someone to investigate this and turn in the other team (Dallas duh) until we have stripped him of his leverage or ace up his sleeve he will continue to hold out.
It would be nice to pick up another draft pick out of this. Didn't we get forced to swap picks because of the Lance Briggs fiasco?

we swapped 3rd and lost a 5th
When will we know the outcome of the tampering?

Parker will be a key figure in the tampering case, too
Posted by Mike Florio on September 28, 2009 10:59 AM ET
We mentioned on Sunday the report from ESPN's Chris Mortensen regarding the possibility that the Michael Crabtree tampering investigation will include an interview of Deion Sanders, a league employee (via NFL Network) who created the current mess by talking on the air about the notion that two teams are willing to pay Crabtree twice the amount that the 49ers have placed on the table.

There's another key figure in the tampering investigation: Agent Eugene Parker.

Parker isn't required to cooperate, and he likely won't. But, if he doesn't, he won't be able to rebut any information that the 49ers might provide regarding things that Parker said to them about, for example, the Jets' interest in Crabtree.

The Jets surely will deny making any such statements -- and that's why, as Michael Lombardi pointed out last week on Inside the NFL, tampering is so rampant.

Basically, they all cheat, and then they all lie to cover up their cheating.

In this case, however, it'll be interesting to see how the league handles the conflicting information. If, on one hand, the Niners says that Parker said something that would indicate tampering by the Jets and if, on the other hand, the Jets predictably deny it, how will it be resolved?

By choosing to remain silent, Parker could be giving credence to the Niners' position. If, after all, Parker had nothing to hide, he'd talk. Moreover, if the Jets truly are a potential suitor for Crabtree's services, Parker would want to avoid doing anything that might remove them as an option. Needless to say, if Parker were to snitch on the Jets, they probably would lose interest in his client. (And, possibly, in some of his other clients.)

Meanwhile, we're hopeful that the ongoing CBA discussions (the next meeting is scheduled for tomorrow) will include negotiations regarding a joint mechanism for securing mandatory cooperation from agents in cases like this. Though the NFL has no power over any of them, the NFLPA exclusively regulates their work. So while Commissioner Roger Goodell can't force Parker to talk, De Smith can. And Goodell and Smith need to realize that an atmosphere of brazen cheating does nothing to advance the long-term interests of the game, even if it sometimes helps a player finagle more money in the short-term, or a team to get a player that it covets.
