Lamar Jackson's decision not to hire an agent was an interesting choice for a first-class NFL Draft 2018 quarterback. Jackson is not the first quarterback to stop hiring an agent – Jacoby Brissett has recently done so – and it's much easier to negotiate a rookie contract than it used to be with the CBA.
However, there may be problems, at least in terms of fighting the public and in coordination with the teams, and these problems start to surface a bit as the design approaches.
According to Mike Mayock of the NFL Network, teams seem to have difficulty scheduling workouts and meeting with Jackson because he uses his mother as his agent.
It is quite possible to work without an agent in this process. But that's not a great look for Jackson – he has to face as many teams as possible.
It also sounds as if he also misses the availability of media and generally hurts himself without engaging an agent.
Bucky Brooks of NFL Network agreed that it could be "problematic" if Jackson did not meet www.mjfriendship.de/de/index.php?op…39&Itemid=32
"It could be problematic, you're used to working with professionals to take on this role as an agent or adviser. If you hear the problem, Lamar for meetings or scheduled workouts, you do not like that, "Brooks said. "Because the only thing an agent can do is raise him and put him in a position to make you as successful as possible."
In addition, Jackson refused to run the 40-yard dash at the Louisville Pro day after declining to run the 40 on the combine. We all know that Lamar Jackson is fast, and it's silly to be put on the quarterback at a certain time, when we all know how fast he is. At the same time, it would be nice to see a guy with Jackson's athleticism destroy the ongoing part of the program.
Jackson criticizedwondered if instead of the quarterback they would rather play on a broad front at NFL level.
He will NOT do that, andduring . It would also have been good to have an agent to fight this bad press.
Jackson is likely to get caught in the first round at the end of the day, but he's not exactly doing any good when it comes to the upkeep process and benefits of some of the things this process offers.
