Receiver DeAndre Hopkins agreed to a contract extension. Former Cardinals legend Larry Fitzgerald signed several contracts in the final seasons of his career following the death of his longtime agent Eugene Parker.

Humphreys, speaking to reporters on Wednesdaysaid it wasn’t about something bad that happened to the agents, but about preparing himself for his post-NFL career.

He praised the agents who made his latest deal, but said he wanted the experience.

“I probably wouldn’t do it again,” he said. “Certainly it was fun.

“That was what I wanted to do. I want to be a businessman, so being able to do one of the biggest deals on my own for the first time was a huge achievement for me.”

He trusted that the team would not try to take advantage of him, so he was comfortable going through this experience alone for the first time.

“I think it will follow me throughout my post-football life as I try to make my own business deals,” he said. try to do it.”

There was one part that was difficult for him – back and forth and waiting.

He is admittedly not a patient person, so the process of talking and then waiting for days was difficult for him.

But now he is the only player since Larry Fitzgerald to have been drafted by the Cardinals and received two contract extensions.

Thanks to the deal, he will be able to keep his dream of playing for only one team for his entire career.
