Spygate's x-factor, meaning former Patriot employee Matt Walsh, has an agreement with the NFL that clears the way for him to talk to the league.  Walsh has implied that he has more information on Spygate-type activitities regarding New England. And many have speculated he can offer something concrete about the much-discussed alleged taping of the Rams' walk-through two days before St.. Louis and New England played in a Super Bowl won by the Patriots.

According to the recent agreement, the league will indemnify Walsh against potential civil action unless he deliberately fails to tell the truth.  Walsh's meeting with the league is schedule for May 13.  By May 8, he's supposed to turn over any relevant tapes or material.  The agreement also requires Walsh to hand over to the league any money that he may make from the controversy in order to reimburse the NFL for the cost of indemnification.  Money he makes beyond that cost he can keep.  That agreement is in place for five years.

Walsh may be speaking with Sen. Arlen Specter and Specter's staff later on May 13.
