Oh, my God! It's not a mock!

And I wrote it. Go figure.

Every now and then players are traded and a phrase is included in the terms: future considerations. I don't have the first clue what it means. My best guess is that the team will receive some kind of draft pick or swap that has yet to be determined. Or maybe it just means that the team owing the future considerations sends over strippers to the hotel of the team due the future considerations when the two teams play at some point down the road.

Anyway, it got me wondering about draft day and how future considerations might come into play. That led to a question to which I have no answer....and perhaps someone does. Here's the scenario:

Buffalo is on the clock and someone Cincy wants, say Newton, is on the board. Buffalo could take Newton. Instead of offering Buffalo the picks it would take to switch places in the first round, Cincy calls with a different offer. If Buffalo will take someone other than Newton, Cincinnati will grand Buffalo future considerations, namely trading #66 for #68 (3rd round swap of picks).

Would this sort of bribe be legal? Would it be enforceable or would it just be a gentleman's agreement?

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
