The executive recruiting coaches and evaluators in the NFL, including ESPN’s Mike Mayock, have been talking a lot lately.
In fact, Mayock had the following to say on a recent podcast on ESPN Radio: “Our recruiting is getting more and more boring.
It’s becoming a little repetitive.
I think it’s a little embarrassing.”
So how did the recruiting coaches go about trying to stop it?
Well, they turned to the NFL Players Association to get involved.
And in the process, they found out that the NFLPA was actually a little more than a mouthpiece for the NFL.
Mayock asked the league’s executive committee if they had any plans to change the way they recruit and he learned that the league is very open to changing how it recruits players.
And they did.
Mayocks show on the podcast that the players association is actually working hard to address the recruiting issue.
They’re working with the NFL and other major sports leagues to help players be more successful on the field.
And it’s not just the NFL that’s interested in changing how they recruit players.
The NFLPA is also looking to improve their recruiting practices.
So, the league seems to be working with NFL players and the NFL on a number of fronts.
But the NFL has been quite proactive in its response to the recruiting issues.
Mayock also addressed the issue of NFL players being able to leave their current contracts early and sign with another team.
While the NFL is working to fix this, they’re also working on a solution that’s going to give players the right to leave early without having to take a pay cut or any of the other financial ramifications of not playing.
The players have been able to negotiate with their current teams to take advantage of this provision, which means that players are able to sign with any team and leave the league.
They also are not obligated to take any of their current deals into the future.
But Mayock says that’s not a problem with the current situation.
The current situation doesn’t require players to take pay cuts.
He says it’s just a matter of finding ways to reduce the financial burden for the players.
“So we need to look at ways to lessen the financial burdens for players who are not in their contracts.””
What about the other issues that the game is facing? “

What about the other issues that the game is facing?
In particular, the NFL needs to make it clear that it’s the players’ decision to leave.
While it’s true that the union has a mandate to help the players stay, the current system doesn’t take that responsibility seriously.
“There’s been no mention of the players having a right to terminate their contracts,” Mayock said.
Mayock says he’s also hearing from NFL players that they want to stay with their teams longer. “
And we need a clear set of rules about when players are permitted to terminate contracts.”
Mayock says he’s also hearing from NFL players that they want to stay with their teams longer.
“I have heard from a number [of players] that they are interested in staying with their respective teams for longer,” he says.
“Players are happy, they want the opportunity to play and they want their families to be happy, and I think they want that.”
So, how about the next step?
Mayock suggests that the next logical step would be for the league to get rid of its current salary cap.
The problem with that, though, is that the salary cap doesn’t reflect how much money is being spent on players.
It only reflects how much teams are actually paying players.
If a team has a lot of cap space, but the team is spending more on players than they’re actually getting back in return, that’s a problem.
“You know,” Mayocks says, “what’s going on right now is a very, very difficult situation.
“That’s going get us out of this situation.””
That’s going get us out of this situation.”
