2012 Revised NFLPA Standard Representation Agreements

Last week, the NFLPA mailed to all certified Contract Advisors several revised Standard Representation Agreements (SRA) dated June 2012.  Contract Advisors have been instructed that the new SRAs are to be used from here on out.  Going forward, should a Contract Advisor use an old SRA, that SRA will be voided and returned to sender.

The NFLPA also send a document that explains how Contract Advisors should properly complete new SRAs.  Many Contract Advisors have pointed out that the instructions are pretty much exactly the same as the old SRA form.  Anyway, the instructions document is embedded, below.
