    Is there some sort of Rookie Orientation that the NFL does for the new players? I seem to remember that there is but I cannot remember the details.

    I would like to see some serious financial management seminars for these guy; many of them do not know how to manage their new wealth and blow it on full-length fur coats and cars and homes and their entourage and assorted leaches. Broke former NFL super stars should talk to the young pups.

    On a more current issue I hope there is some encouragement to ditch all their old gangsta friends from the 'Hood; there are a tons of stories about NFL players that got into serious trouble because of their thugs-in-arms buddies.

    (A) Yes, there is; (B) they address financial issues; (C) they have a rookie trivia challenge (based at least partly on the workshops, but also a few "NFL history"-type questions, IIRC) which the Patriots rookies have won at least twice. :)

    IIRC, it's mandatory and rookies have been fined for skipping it or leaving early. It's where Aqib Talib got in a fight with his TB teammate (allegedly)....
