Of course the Colts would contend what do they gain from talking to
one agent vs another and that to them it made no difference.
But I think there could be a reason why Colts wanted Uberstine instead of
Suppose Colts knew with Cornich that any offer they made would have a
chance to be matched by the Patriots.
So Colts contact Uberstine and say will work with him but there can be no
allowing PATs to match their offer.
Uberstine agrees and then contacts Adam and lays it out.
It just seem strange that Uberstine would on his own go out and contact the
Colts when he wasn't even Adams agent not even knowing that Adam
would drop Cornich if he got the deal.
Something really smells here.
