INDIANAPOLIS -- Left tackle Ereck Flowers, the standout from the University of Miami who is projected as a mid first-round or early second-round pick in the NFL Draft, said Friday he doesn’t plan on hiring an agent this year.
Flowers said he originally got the idea from former UM players.
“I talked to players before about this,” Flowers said. “The University of Miami, one thing we take pride in is players coming back to teach other people the way. I’ve done research with my father. We didn’t see any reason to have one.”Flowers said he’d probably hire a lawyer to “look through” his rookie contract.
“Other than that, I’m not signing with an agent,” he said.
With NFL salaries slotted, there’s little reason for a player to hire an agent initially, so Flowers will handle the job with his father.
“We’ve just done research on it,” Flowers said. “My father is a pretty intelligent guy so we’ve talked to people and I’ve talked to my coaches a little about it, so it’s one thing we decided we would do.”
