How one agent's trying to help sell a veteran client


Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

Ever wonder how an agent tries to package and sell his client?

You hear sometimes about a big packet put together that attempts to spell out a guy's value. Veteran agent Ralph Cindrich has done a 13-page packet for center Jeff Saturday, and cleared the AFC South blog to share it (PDF).

It's not Earth-shattering, but it is interesting.

While keeping in mind we don't know details of the offer the Colts say they've made or a similarly detailed look at Saturday from the team's perspective, here are some points the stood out to me from the packet:

There are a lot of centers out there, and it's hard to predict the market for Saturday. I'm sure the Colts are hoping it's less than what Saturday expects, and that such a scenrio increases their chances to keep him. If Saturday leaves, the Colts offense operating without a key cog and a Manning favorite will be a big storyline as the team heads into 2009.
