Are the Dallas Cowboys be in trouble with the NFL for tampering?

Stefon Diggs, the standout wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills, was shown looking obviously agitated and frustrated on the sidelines near the end of the Cincinnati Bengals' 27-10 victory over the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Divisional playoff game.

When the ball wasn't being thrown his way, Diggs appeared frustrated with his quarterback Josh Allen. He finished the game with just four receptions for 35 yards, which is much less than his season average.

Even worse, Stefon did not make himself available to the media after the game as is normal, and he immediately left the stadium.

Even though Diggs only recently signed a four-year agreement worth $96 million last year, many people thought that he might try to force his way out of Buffalo after this.

The NFL is not happy with how events unfolded

This provided an opportunity for his brother Trevon, a cornerback for the Dallas Cowboys, to approach his brother about joining the team.

Trevon has been actively pleading with his brother Stefon to move to Dallas over the past few weeks. He has sent him messages and even posted a photohopped image of Stefon wearing a Cowboys uniform on his Instagram story.

There are extremely serious restrictions when it comes to tampering and interacting with a player who is already under contract with another team, so while this may just be fun and games between two brothers, the NFL may not view it that way.

Just last year, the NFL punished the Miami Dolphins and owner Stephen Ross for breaking the anti-tampering rule when pursuing quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Sean Payton by taking away their 2023 first-round and 2024 third-round draft picks, suspending Ross, and fining him $1.5 million.

The Diggs brothers may want to keep these discussions private and away from the public eye even if there hasn't been any hint that the NFL will take any disciplinary action in relation to this.
