ProFootballTalk.com - Union Not Communicating With Agents About CBA Issues I found this interesting...that there is surprise that agents were not involved with the CBA talks. I really wonder what input they have had on past negotiations and if they really should be involved at all as their claim in this might NOT be the same as the players. If Upshaw was influenced by agents could that explain certain things in the CBA that was pro agent and not helping the players as much? Is this a good idea NOT to have agents involved in these negotiations? This is one dynamic I do not have a handle on.
