    NFL rookies are not allowed to attend camp, except on weekends, until the school year is over at their school. It does not matter if the rookie has no intention of graduating. It also does not matter if the rookie graduated already and just came back for a victory lap. They cannot attend camp during the week until the school year is over. So why is this a special problem for Sankey?

    The schools in the Pac 10/12 have always started and ended their school year a month later than most of the rest of North America. So Sankey, along with other Pac 12 rookies, will have to wait an extra month before attending OTAs.

    Further reading:

    This rule has been in place for as long as I can remember. And it has always been an issue with Pac 10/12 rookies. We would have really noticed in 2011 when the top three Titans picks all came from the Pac 10. However the lockout that year cancelled all OTAs.

    What would happen if Sankey just showed up anyway?

    I don't know if he has graduated or not, but what is to stop a rookied from showing up if he is a graduate? That seems like a......dumb.....rule.

    He can't. Team would get in trouble for having him there. Peyton Manning tried to get an exception. You know, being Peyton he is used to people making exceptions for him. He had graduated and went back for a victory lap. No dice. No exceptions.

    In the end he only missed a couple weeks of OTA coming from an SEC school. But expected an exception anyway.

    Sankey has made it this far in his college academic career with his underwater basket weaving major and he needs to do the right thing and finish these last couple of months and get that diploma.

    PK being a dick to our rookies and camp bodies. I usually defend him but this is uncalled for.
