It happens all the time, but few gaff it in the media like this.. for a smart coach like Fisher that was a silly mistake.

Wonder if the league will step on this one.. fine or late round draft pick loss?

FISHER ADMITS TO VIOLATION OF THE RULES?
Posted by Mike Florio on October 6, 2008, 5:51 p.m.

As expected, the Tennessee Titans have re-signed quarterback Chris Simms, only two days after cutting him. In so doing, coach Jeff Fisher basically admitted to violating the rules against having verbal agreements with players.

Chris totally understood the move, and we assured him wed get him back under contract and we did, coach Jeff Fisher said.

Remarked a league insider in response, Holy shit.

Then the league insider was a bit more specific (but far less entertaining): Im not sure the league office is going to look very favorably upon that transaction and quote. It sure looks and sounds like a pre-existing agreement to manipulate the roster.

The Titans dumped Simms on Saturday so that they could sign an extra punter, in the event that Criag Hentrich couldnt play.

The reaction in some circles was to assume that the Titans and Simms had a wink-nod-belch-fart agreement in place with Simms, with Simms being told hed be re-signed, but with neither Simms nor the Titans ever admitting to it.

And, amazingly, Fisher has essentially admitted to entering into a verbal understanding with Simms that hed be brought back.

Complicating matters is that Fisher is the Co-Chair of the Competition Committee, and thus in our view he should be avoiding not only rules violations but any conduct that might appear to constitute a violation.

In the end, the Titans message to Simms was in line with our speculation from Saturday night: Look, Chris, youre already going to be paid for the week because you were on the team as of close of business on Tuesday. And you were going to be the third quarterback on Sunday. So were just going to slide you off the roster today, and well bring you back next week.

As we understand the rules, thats simply not permitted. It now remains to be seen whether the league will do anything about it.

Take all their draft choices and split them up amongst all teams that have green and gold as their team colors.
