Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (3/13/15)

This week marked the start of the NFL new league year, as well as free agency, and it did not disappoint. In my opinion, this was the most active free agency, with many top players being moved, that I have ever seen. Drew Rosenhaus certainly enjoyed the week as he had more clients signed than […]
