Does anybody else think that Blair's agent is doing him no favors by talking up the fact that he wasn't drafted higher because of having no ACLs in his knees? Seems to me that something like that could be used against him in contract negotiations. I'm not sure what purpose it served bringing it up.

Also, the agent pretty much threw Jamie Dixon and his staff under the bus by saying that they tried to persuade Blair to stay even though they knew it would just make his knee situation worse, implying that they were acting in their own best interest rather than Blair's. Again, what purpose did this serve?

In my mind, every word that comes out of an agent's mouth should be for the purpose of building up his client's worth. I think this guy is hurting rather than helping Blair.

Yeah i agree he is hurting Blair. He is making it sound like he is going to implode in a year or two.
