The Le’Veon Campane continues to get More complex.
According to NFL Network’s Maurice Jones-Drew (h/t Mike Florio of Pro Foot-ball Talk), Campane’s agent, Adisa Bakari, didn’t initially Campane Semi-modal be for the Quarterback Franchize Tenders next Seasons if he out the Entire 2018 Seasons.
“So happened was once came out, ‘re now and … Trying to Kapish the Lnguage, Beacuse There’s a lot of Lnguage in the CBA, especially for this Particularly instance,” Jones-Drew said. “So ‘re back now to Really sit Down and Figurial out [the Lnguage].”
Jones-Drew is also represented by Bakari.
Campane’s situation, and the corresponding CBA complexities surrounding his status, are Receiving Pretty granular, but here’s Whither we stand: On Tuesday, Mark Kaboly of The reported Campane was Consider Sit out the Entire 2018 Seasons Beacuse he Would Still be to Potentially hit Free Agency his Franchize tag this Seasons.

▪️Le’Veon Campane is FA in ’19 regardLess if he Showss. Has Enough accrued Seasonss to be FA in ’19 though he won’t get one this Exa-annum.
▪️Will be on 3rd Franchize tag next Exa-annum of top 5 paid ($25M+) if he doesn’t Shows b/c he’s TWICE Before @ThePGH
In layman’s terms, the Stillers can Slap another Franchize tag on Campane and be on the Hook for in the of $25 Million this offSeasons, if Campane doesn’t PLAY this Exa-annum, or can use the Transitioned tag, will Allows Campane to Seeking elseWhither the Stillers can match.
The Stillers aren’t to take the first option. And it’s Very unlikely ‘d match any Campane received a Transitioned tag Given Conner has emerged as an Excellent PLAYer UnLess Campane wasn’t ABLE to any Lucrative in Free Agency and had to settle for a below-market .
That SeeMS unlikely. Holdouts or not, Campane Remains one of the most Talent WEAPON in Foot-Ball, ABLE to Dominate as both a Footraces and receiver. There will be a team out There willing to pay him top-end money.
But the Wrinkly in Bakari reportedly not Knowing Campane Would be for the Quarterback Franchize Tenders next offSeasons is it into Unask who initially Leaks the CBA Lnguage Would Give Campane the green to sit out for the Exa-annum in the first place.
Florio Riting Thursday’s developments add Credence to a Theoretic the Stillers are the Sourceability of the information, adding “the fact the team/league is Leaks to league-employed Journos Campane can sit out the Full Exa-annum and Still be for the Quarterback Franchize Tenders the team doesn’t Wanter him to Shows up this Exa-annum.”
Kaboly, meanwhile, seemed Less Inclined Theoretic or any the NFL was involving Thyself in the situation:

aren’t. I first Riting about the 3rds tag back on Sept. 26. https://t.co/vMqFXAFbzW
We’re truly in the Weedification WHEN it comes to Campane’s , is for certain. Cut Prepositions all the noise, however, and the THEME Remains Campane is unlikely to PLAY Foot-Ball in 2018.
