Is Gun Tampering?


You may remember yesterday we posted a link quoting former Chiefs defensive coordinator, Gunther Cunningham. In the quote, Gun mentioned that there were several players on the Chiefs defense that may be cut and that he would like to pick them up if that happened. The quote has raised some eyebrows around the net and Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is crying foul.

"On cue, Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham has dipped a toe into the tampering pool.As Rosenthal pointed out, the former Chiefs defensive coordinator recently said, “[Kansas City] keeps wanting to dump their players. I would like to be there to catch a lot of them, because I know a couple of those guys.”Though Cunningham mentioned no specific players, we believe that he has committed a textbook violation of the tampering rules by expressing general interest in multiple players under contract with another team."

Florio goes on to say that agents of Chiefs players who are going to become free agents will be able to use Gun’s comments as leverage to get their players bigger contracts.

"“We’ll just go to Detroit,” an agent might say. “Cunningham has said he wants some of his old guys.”"

What do you think, Addicts? Is “Don Pioli” going to have to have Gunther whacked?
