Could you explain how the "runners" operate? Are there "good" and ethical agents that use runners, or are most of the agents that use runners a bit shady? Are runners paid by commission only, or are they given a base salary and performance based bonuses

A "runner" can be anyone from a parent of a player you are recruiting to someone an agent uses to buffer himself from legal obligations. The problems most states have are defining "runners" in a legal sense and putting parameters on their duties. Yes, certainly there are ethical agents and ethical ways to use runners. Runners are paid commission or a flat fee and this must be disclosed in writing to the player you are recruiting exactly what you are paying the runner.

Ask me anything about the NFL, player contracts, and NFL current events
