So general managers and agents aren’t supposed to be talking.
Conversation is surely going on behind the scenes in places, but not in public even though they know each other well and they are often in the same place at the same time.
How does that work exactly?
Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times paints the picture from the UCLA Pro Day this week.
Nick Barnett’s agent Chuck Price bumps into Packers G.M. Ted Thompson: “We’re not supposed to talk, are we?” Price said.
Thompson: “Well, you can talk, but I have to turn around and walk away.”
And . . . scene.
