    I watch NFL Network every evening. This guy was always on the show and the last few weeks he's not been on the show at all. Here we are coming up on the draft and he is nowhere in sight. Any ideas why?

    NFLN would be foolish to let him get away. Shefter's great.

    schefter's contract expired - he is our network's main liason (sportsnet.ca) and is an incredible source....I have no doubt he will find work elsewhere.

    He's holding out?!!!!!

    Who does he think he is? Ocho Cinco? Wow, I would think that in any other corporate job, "holding out", would probably get you fired. Only in the wacky world of the NFL.

    We shall now name him, "Siete Schefter"..........

    Who needs Adam Schefter when you have a top NFL insider such as Charley Casserly? :tomato:

    I'm afraid that's how it's turning out. PFT reports that several league and industry sources have told them that Adam Schefter, who still is under contract with NFL Network, will join ESPN later this year. I would take this to mean in the middle of August when his NFLN contract runs out............just in time for the regular season.

    Oh god no. What a waste of good talent.

    Ah well Schefty, I guess you've had a good run, but now they'll force you to deliver opinion pieces instead of reporting breaking news.
