I guess when you’re one of the more popular/influential owners in the league, any sort of real punishment wasn’t to be expected. 

This is a laughable punishment. A slap on the wrist with a wet noodle.

If this is the precedent for punishment, why wouldn’t every team start working early? 

They might as well just allow "tampering." What team isn't going to give up a 5th round pick to try to get an elite talent?

Hopefully he starts to play up to the level of his contract, because I certainly don’t think he’s earned it yet. 

Yep. This is a “projection” contract. If you’re ranking QBs in the NFL this season, I don’t know that Lawrence is Top 10. He’s got the talent, obviously. But he hasn’t been anywhere near elite so far. 
 

You have to win one game: are you taking Kirk Cousins or Trevor Lawrence?

And the fact that it wasn’t just Cousins, but 3 free agents? The falcons basically said f your rules!

We did a lot worse. 

Did we? They all ended up being failures, but we didn't spend a top 10 pick on the guy we drafted. 

I'd say the Jets, 49ers, Bears and Patriots actually did significantly worse than us drafting a bum in the 3rd round.
