Romeo Crennel Vulnerable To Tampering Charges With Recent Comments

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel may have violated league policy by expressing his interest in Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne, according to Yahoo! Sports.

I'm not supposed to talk about anyone else's players and he's still a player with Indianapolis," Crennel said when asked about whether the Chiefs would be interested if Peyton Manning became a free-agent. "But with a talent like that, I would be crazy not to consider it if he were available. I'll leave it at that."

He was also asked about the potential of going after free-agent quarterback Chad Henne. Henne had played under the Chiefs current offensive coordinator Brian Daboli.

"You have to look at all of it and see how it all plays out. You have to juggle some balls and see what happens. Because of his relationship with Diboli, I think that would be a consideration but to say right now that's the case, I'm not ready to do that."

Such responses could leave Crennel with a potential tampering case, according to Yahoo!. Current league rules prohibit “any public or private statement of interest, qualified or unqualified, in another club’s player to that player’s agent or representative, or to a member of the news media.”

Crennel took over as interim head coach after Todd Haley was fired with three games left to play.  Crennel went 2-1, leading the Chiefs to a victory over the undefeated Green Bay Packers which snapped their 19-game winning streak.  He was later named the team’s permanent head coach.
