The NFL does limit how old someone can be before they sign with an NFL team. But players are welcome to get paid by agents before that (many do) or to play in a different football league or whatever else they want to do. ...they just can't claim to be amateur athletes after they get paid for being football players.Isn’t the rule that they can’t go straight to the nfl? They have to play at least 3 years of college ball? Didn’t Maurice Clarett try to do that?
