Agent wants his players to see NFL offer
this is interesting- Personally dont think an agent doing this to benefit clients, and asking for it, becuase he is NOT getting paid or genearing revenue with no new deals being done- so he is fustrated.. But anything at this point that puts pressure on BOTH SIDES to get to the table works for me.
Agent wants to seeowner's last proposal
Linta wants his players to see offer Aaron Wilson
Veteran NFL agent Joe Linta would like to see a copy of the latest offer from the owners.
Linta told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he would like to obtain the proposal and show it to his clients.
Linta wants to know if the offer is any good and might make sense to accept.
“I’d like to see it myself so when I talk to my 45 guys, I can show them what it is – since there is no union,’’ Linta said. “I would like Mr. Rooney to forward the offer to me. I represent two percent of the union, I’m not insignificant. Let me ask you something, who has the players’ back more, the players union or the player’s agent? Why can’t I get copy of this and disseminate it to my players?”
“You take 10 or 15 agents and you’re talking half of the league” they represent, Linta said. “Why is it that all these smart guys who are agents are being kept out of the loop? I don’t know of any agent privy to any information. They’re trying to negotiate a deal and what do agents do for a living? They negotiate deals.”
Linta is concerned there won't even be a season.
These guys are driving these players right off a cliff right now," he said. "I told a father of one of my players who got drafted, it’s 50-50 this season is not going to happen. These coaches are starting to go looney-toon too."
