GMs skirting rules by talking to undrafted free agents By Mike Freeman http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/15019353/gms-skirting-rules-by-talking-to-undrafted-free-agents CBSSports.com National Columnist May 2, 2011Tell Mike your opinion! 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.
