Update: Free Agent Combine


The purpose of the Coach Zauner Free Agent Specialist’s Combine is simply to help kicking specialists get exposure to professional football teams.

And as I am preparing for the Combine, I realize there is uncertainty about what -if any- restrictions regarding coach and player contact may be imposed by the NFL League if the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) is not extended.
With this in mind, and after talking with a number of NFL GM’s, coaches and league officials at the 2011 NFL Combine, I have prepared a game plan that will ensure, that all players who attend the Free Agent Specialist's Combine will still get the exposure they need to all NFL teams.

Coaches have repeatedly told me how important the information gathered at the Coach Zauner Free Agent Specialist’s Combine is to them. And this year, if coaches are not allowed to observe all the players who attend, then getting the information on the kicking specialists they were not able to evaluate will be even more important to them.

It will only be a few days until we know the results of the CBA discussions. But regardless the results, we are moving forward with the 3rd Annual Coach Zauner’s Free Agent Combine, and will ensure kicking specialists they will receive the exposure to NFL teams they need to advance their careers.

Just to note, all UFL teams and many of the CFL teams have already confirmed they will be in attendance.

Stay tuned for continued updates...
