NFL Agent Discipline

When he is not busy recruiting potential clients for Dynasty, reading up on the NFL Collective Bargaining agreement, or taking his recently engaged fiance to dinner (CONGRATULATIONS!), Matthew Watkins likes to write posts over at the Dynasty Newswire.  His most recent piece is definitely a good weekend read.  It discusses the NFLPA’s Committee on Agent Regulation and Discipline and some of its disciplinary actions that it has taken as of late.  If you need a break between watching the Gators beat the Vols or the Bulldogs handle the Sun Devils, go check out Matt’s article here.
