The Eagles will likely find out this week if they pay a price for allegedly tampering before signing Saquon Barkley.

The Falcons have also been investigated for the contact they may or may not have had with then-free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins.

ESPN is reporting a league source saying that the Falcons’ alleged transgressions are considered more significant, and the discipline is expected to be more severe for Atlanta.

In the past, the league has taken tampering seriously and disciplined teams accordingly.

The Miami Dolphins forfeited their 2023 first-round pick and a 2024 third-round selection for tampering with quarterback Tom Brady and coach Sean Payton on three occasions from 2019 to 2022. Team owner Stephen Ross and vice chairman/limited partner Bruce Beal were fined; Ross was fined $1.5 million, while Beal was fined $500,000.

The Kansas City Chiefs forfeited their 2016 third-round pick and a 2017 sixth-round selection for tampering with wide receiver Jeremy Maclin in 2015. The Chiefs were also fined $250,000. Coach Andy Reid was fined $75,000, and then-general manager John Dorsey was fined $25,000.
