How the NFL Judges Character

Friday April 21st, 2017

In wake of Aaron Hernandez' tragic story, I've been thinking a lot about character issues with NFL players. I caught up with Joe Banner, former Eagles president and Browns CEO to talk about how he judged the character of potential draft picks and free agent signings.

He's not sure why or how the dramatic change in opinion about Manziel occurred.
