NBC reports a "source" is reporting to them at profootballblahblah.com that Sulak has been waived.

The article above implies that Sulak was holding out and the Raiders used an obscure clause not to tender a one-year contract. This goes with Cable's "you want to be here or get out" attitude. Which I dig. The PFT source said "I've never see this happen before."

A fantasy site—way too many of them and undeserving of sourcing—said Sulak was "on the bubble since the Ellis sigining." To which I reply right now...huh?

Darkside Kush broke this a while ago in an unrelated thread, I just ran with it and started sourcing the news. So far no source.

Tragedy of modern news: profootballtalk is the only source for this, and they won't name their source except as a "league official." And they wonder why people don't trust the news.

Contra Costa Times and SF Gate aren't reporting anything yet.

I could actually be wasting your time posting a BS rumor, aplogies if this happens.

Where can I comment?
