according to the NFL, the offer sheet G Steve Hutchinson signed last week from the Minnesota vikings is in violation of the league labor contract.

A claim has been filed, on the behalf of the Seahawks, which will delay the sunday deadline for the team to match the vikings offer to hutchinson. If arbitrator rules in the league's favor, the Seahawks would not have to match the clause in the contract which would guarantee Hutchinson the entire sum of the contract if he is not the team's highest paid offensive lineman.

Good. I'm glad the NFL squashed a ridiculous poision pill.

It set a horrible precedent.

It must have been paragraph R, sub paragraph 14, Mr. Laz, which clearly states, "a team may not include Lake Erie in an offensive lineman's compensation."

The title of this thread is misleading. The NFL hasn't stated that the offer is invalid: rather the Seahawks are protesting it and waiting for a ruling..

The Vikings make the Chiefs front office look halfway competent.
