NFL Lockout Watch, Day 59: Agents Claim Teams Tampering With Undrafted Players
Published May 9, 2011
WAITING FOR THEIR WORLD TO CHANGE: In St. Louis, Bill Coats notes "uncertainty rules the day" for undrafted free agents. Agent Harold Lewis said he advises his clients to "just keep yourself in shape, keep working out hard." Lewis: "You know that there's interest." Undrafted CB Niles Brinkley said, "We've got to wait, be patient and be ready for the call. You get frustrated a little bit, but you know that it eventually will be over and you'll be with a team." Undrafted WR Jamorris Warren: "You've just got to prepare yourself and get ready for when the time comes, whenever the lockout's over" (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 5/9). Undrafted RB John Clay: "We're all in a tough boat right now. ... You've got to just play it by ear, and whenever they figure what they want to do with the lockout, then teams will be making moves. All you can do until then is take care of your side of the business by keeping in shape, and being ready to go when the time comes" (SI.com, 5/6).
