Report: Stafford's free tix lead to Georgia violation

Matthew Stafford and Jay Cutler should be quarterbacking rivals for years to come in the NFC North, but the University of Georgia may be wishing that the two former SEC quarterbacks weren't so friendly last year.

The Athens Banner-Herald published a story saying that Georgia self-reported eight violations, including one that came from a tip from the NFLPA, which was concerned that agents were inappropriately contacting a Georgia draft prospect. The school's report cited an instance of four players getting complimentary tickets to an Atlanta Falcons game in November 2008.

The player involved texted then-Broncos quarterback Cutler — whom he'd known since high school — to request the tickets. The school kept the player's name private, citing student privacy laws, but the Banner-Herald reported that a former teammate, Shaun Chapas, identified Stafford as the player getting the tickets.

They can't be lax in any department. Rules are rules.
