Not Guilty: Eagles Clear Of Tampering In Saquon Barkley Investigation

Not Guilty: Eagles Clear Of Tampering In Saquon Barkley Investigation Bill Streicher, USA TODAY Sports

The NFL announced on Wednesday that the Eagles will receive no penalty.

Philadelphia, along with Atlanda, were under investigation for tampering prior to free agency’s official start.

In the case of the Eagles, the league was looking into the team’s second reported signing and one that had been talked about for weeks prior to free agency starting: new Eagles running back Saquon Barkley.

The investigation started as a result of a comment James Franklin made at Penn State.

Barkley signed a three-year deal not too long after free agency started, but pretty well after the Chicago Bears had already signed away D’Andre Swift.

The Falcons were found guilty of tampering and have to forfeit their fifth-round pick for signing Kirk Cousins to his huge deal then spending a first-round pick on another quarterback to help the ailing franchise. They also faced some fines.
