    The phone call came and the agent was slightly surprised at the voice on the other end. He recognized almost immediately: it was an NFL general manager.

    Startled because this was lockout hell and there'd been little contact until now, the conversation started as so many others have in the past -- how's the wife, the kids, etc., blah, blah -- then it suddenly turned to the agent's client, an undrafted free agent. This is how that portion of the conversation went according to the agent.

    GM: Hypothetically speaking, we might be interested in your guy down the road.
