Here's why NFL is investigating potential tampering by Eagles, Falcons for pursuit of Saquon Barkley, Kirk Cousins

Mar 16, 2024

A pair of high-profile tampering questions left the NFL little choice but to respond Thursday.

Whether the Philadelphia Eagles or Atlanta Falcons face consequences, however, remain to be seen.

The NFL is investigating the Eagles and Falcons for tampering in their free-agency pursuits of running back Saquon Barkley and quarterback Kirk Cousins, a source with knowledge of the investigation confirmed to Yahoo Sports on Thursday afternoon.

“Standard for the league to look into such matters,” the source said.

It would be less standard for the league to impose sanctions, even if levying fines and docking draft picks is within league purview if allegations are confirmed.
