John Thornton is at peace as the sports world around him is chaotic. (There’s a reason why)

The former Mountaineer and NFL veteran, turned player agent, has cause to celebrate. He recently negotiated the largest signing bonus for a defensive-back in NFL history.

That $84 million dollar contract is just one of many topics the “Guys” talk about on this episode.

Listener questions and comments complete the show.
