Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (2/25/2011)

Shout out to all the agents currently freezing their tails off in Indianapolis.  It is where the NFL Scouting Combine is held every year and happens to be the most popular annual meeting for NFL Certified Contract Advisors to attend.  This year, it happens to be a mandatory meeting for all Contract Advisors.  The NFLPA decided to make it mandatory based on the upcoming expiration of the current NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement.  I spent a few days in Memphis, Tennessee this week and had the opportunity to meet many people in the athletic department.  I am getting ready to start making the rounds in Spring Training, with Jupiter being my main spot.  Let me know if you will be around, and maybe we can meet up.  Here are some stories I missed this past week:
