Earlier this week, we passed along the not-so-surprising news that widespread communication is taking place between players and assistant coaches during the lockout.
PFT Live guest Rodney Harrison says it’s to be expected in such a competitive league.
“Are you kidding me? Whether it’s a cousin’s cell phone, calling someone up, that’s all part of it. . . . You gotta be crazy if you don’t think that’s happening,” Harrison said. “I won’t say who, but I know there is communication going on.”
Not that it’s a bad idea. Harrison says that he would “probably” be staying in touch with an assistant coach if he was in the league.
He would especially want to know what a coach wanted him to work on, and he would want to get into the playbook if there was a new coach in town.
