As most of us are gearing up for the holidays, college football players are preparing to play in their team’s bowl game. Except for two, that is. College running back standouts, Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey and LSU’s Leonard Fournette have chosen to sit out the final games of their college careers to prepare for the upcoming NFL Draft. This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, seeing as running backs have the shortest shelf life in the NFL and players don’t want to risk getting hurt, but the announcement didn’t sit well with everyone. I took to Twitter to express my thoughts on the issue.

This week I also sat down with Ahmad Nassar for The Business of Sports podcast. Nassar is the President of NFL Players Inc., which is the for-profit, commercial arm of the NFLPA. Nassar provided an inside look into NFL Players Inc. as well as a preview for what’s to come for them in 2017.
