The affected players are third-round cornerback Chris Owens, fifth-round offensive lineman Garrett Reynolds, and sixth-round linebacker Spencer Adkins.
Per Adam Caplan of, the issues were minor.
A league source tells us that the issue arose from a “language oversight” relating to team incentives and individual “not likely to be earned” incentives.

    Do these things happen yearly?
    I am not trying to be a wise ass, I seriously want to know.
    Couldn’t find an answer when I googled the issue.

    If I recall correctly, this happened with a few Saints during this year’s offseason… Jon Vilma, Devery Henderson, and Jon Stinchcomb all had their contracts disapproved for tweaking. I think this might happen a lot more often than it is reported. Hell, my time sheet is disappoved about 50% of the time at the end of every week for “tweaking”.

    Did the clause have anything to do with interstate dog fighting operations?

    The Falcons have a rookie named Deals? Couldn’t find him anywhere on the Falcons website or the NFL draft log.
