There’s so much to consider from both the players’ side and the front office angle, so we continued the conversation in this front office roundtable with Banner, Tannenbaum and former Detroit Lions team president Tom Lewand. All three have experience doing deals with high-profile players, so they presented valuable insight into the strategy teams should be employing at this time.
