Another rumor roundup for this week, and it once again includes a lot of material from Tony Pauline and various local beat writers around the league.
The last rumor roundup I posted inspired a lot of questions online and in my inbox about the veracity of “my” rumors. The vast majority of the rumors posted aren’t really “mine” in that I haven’t been directly sourced most of them and they are published elsewhere. This is more of a summary of the work done around the league.
More than that, rumors are not reliable, all they do is give a little additional context to the speculation every fan does in the offseason. Check out Walter Football’s 2013 Rumor Results to see how useful they really are. Even more useful is this article from a former director of college scouting for the Bears, Greg Gabriel. Teams will lie.
