Shropshire from Global Sport Institute and Scott Rosner from Columbia University discuss former NFL MVP Lamar Jackson representing himself in contract extension negotiations with the Baltimore Ravens as well as a new National Labor Relations Board memo stating its case that college athletes are employees at private universities, opening the door for further options of unionization and collective bargaining.
