EAGLES DIDN’T TAMPER WHEN SIGNING SAQUON, NFL SAYS — WHEW!

By Max Harper

The Eagles are off the Saquon Barkley hook.

The NFL issued the following statement today:

“After a thorough review of the Philadelphia Eagles signing of Saquon Barkley, the NFL today informed the club that the investigation did not discover sufficient evidence to support a finding that the Anti-Tampering Policy was violated.

“In coming to this conclusion, the league reviewed phone logs, text messages and other documents related to Philadelphia’s free agency strategy and decision to sign Barkley.

“The NFL also interviewed several members of the organization, including Howie Roseman and Nick Sirianni, as well as Barkley and Penn State head coach James Franklin.

“As with every review, should new evidence be uncovered, the league may reopen the investigation.”

The issue came to light when Franklin told reporters that Roseman’s pitch to Barkley included pointing out the number of Penn State fans who are also Eagles fans. During the pre-free agency negotiating period, there can be no contact between the team and player directly.
