Andy Reid, you big fat cheater! When the Eagles lost Jeremy Maclin to the Chiefs in free agency a year ago, the Birds' former long-time coach had impermissible contact with him.

Maclin ended up signing a five-year, $55 million deal with Kansas City, where he had 87 catches for 1088 yards and 8 TDs in 2015.

Kansas City will forfeit its third-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and its sixth-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. The Chiefs will also pay a fine of $250,000, Andy Reid will pay a fine of $75,000, and Chiefs GM John Dorsey will pay a fine of $25,000.

Meanwhile, the Eagles lost their best receiver, and suffered through a season in which their leftover receivers led the NFL in drops. For being the victims of tampering, the Eagles get… (drumroll)… nothing.
