CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS… fighting for every dollar

Given the complexity of the NFL salary cap system and Collective Bargaining Agreement, only experienced, skillful negotiators can ensure that players are maximizing their potential earning power. In our second decade of representing NFL players, BTI Sports has successfully negotiated hundreds of NFL contracts, including numerous sophisticated, record-setting deals. We are tough, aggressive, intelligent negotiators who have earned the respect of NFL clubs by consistently promoting and protecting our clients’ interests. We fully understand the immense responsibility that comes with negotiating our clients’ contracts. As such, we adhere to strict standards of preparation, research, strategy and ethics for each negotiation – from rookie contracts to high-profile free agent deals. Using this approach, along with creativity and a complete understanding of our client’s objectives, BTI Sports has achieved outstanding results for our clients, often exceeding expectations.

PRE-DRAFT TRAINING… conquering the NFL Combine

Your performance at the NFL Combine and other pre-draft workouts will greatly influence your draft position. Small differences in times and measures can result in huge differences in dollars. Therefore, the physical and mental preparation leading to these events must be carefully designed to maximize your results. Our clients train with elite performance enhancement specialists to achieve this goal. Programs are designed to improve speed, agility, power, flexibility and position-specific performance. However, we understand that each client is unique, and factors like injury history, nutrition, baseline strengths and weaknesses, scouting reports, schedule and location must be considered in devising each customized plan. BTI Sports’ draft-eligible clients work with:

  • Combine-prep experts
  • Sprint coaches
  • Strength & conditioning professionals
  • Sports nutritionists
  • Sports medicine physicians
  • Physical therapists
  • Sports psychologists
  • Massage therapists
  • Bio-mechanics experts
  • Injury prevention specialists
