How the NFL Offseason Works Through the Eyes of an NFL Agent

Joe welcomes special guest, Derek Hawkridge, an NFL agent for Steinberg Sports and Entertainment, to the show today to discuss a number of the ins and outs of professional football.

Is money still at stake when a player chooses which team to sign with as a free agent? What options are available to incoming draft picks to improve their stock? What exactly does a sports agency do and why is it different with the NFL compared to other sports? And why aren’t athletes liking the franchise label but being cooperative when restructuring their current deals?

It’s a crazy NFL offseason and a lot of the behind-the-scenes work is revealed in this informative and entertaining episode.
