It's the first day back from spring break and, as undergraduates in shorts and sundresses loll on the lawn outside, three Tulane football players are seated around a U-shaped table in a small meeting room. With marker in hand, sports agent Martin Fischman stands before them at a whiteboard and poses a question:"Ribbon sells for 19 cents a yard. How much will you save by buying 30 yards for $5?"There was no such scene in "Jerry Maguire," the 1996 movie that shaped many sports fans' perceptions of NFL agents. But here, on the second floor of Tulane's student union, the 34-year-old Fischman, a real-life Jerry Maguire, doubles as teacher, coach and cheerleader in leading a 40-minute test-prep session for the Wonderlic exam, which three of his clients will take the next morning as part of Tulane's pro day for prospective NFL employers.Working from a stack of sample tests, Fischman gives examples of the types of math, vocabulary and reasoning questions that defensive tackle Sean Wilson and … [Read more...] about ‘Super agents’ rep 75 percent of NFL players.

We had him rated highly,” Shurmur said Tuesday morning at the NFL coaches breakfast at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes. “The unfortunate thing for me is that there’s just not a lot of him playing football in a Giants … [Read more...] about How Giants will evaluate talent they already have in QB Davis Webb ahead of NFL draft
