Raheem Morris Talks To Players: Similar Harbaugh-esque Warning Coming From NFL?

New, comments

Per PFT, Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris admitted in a radio interview that he has been in touch with some of his players during the lockout:

Caller: So they're right over there. They're making such a strong [impact with the kids]. ...Those guys [and other Buccaneers] come out and put a lot of time into those boys.

Raheem: Hey listen. I talk to them all the time. I talk to those guys all the time. [Raheem then changes subject to address an earlier question.]

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has received multiple warnings for his interactions with QB Alex Smith. Recently he was warned about his comments regarding Alex Smith during the lockout. At that point he said he was not going to comment on Smith anymore given the league warning.

I'm guessing Coach Morris will likely be receiving a call at some point in the near future from Der Kommissar, if he hasn't already. Personally I hope every 49ers coach is doing whatever they can under the radar to contact 49ers players. While I generally believe in playing by the rules, this is a situation where everything about it is ridiculous, so why should the rules be any less so? The 49ers are going to need every edge they can get in the coming so as the saying goes, "If you're not cheating, you're not trying."
