Collaboration will be key for Frazier and SpielmanBefore Brad Childress was fired as coach in November, he also served in some ways as a de facto general manager. Childress had a clause in his contract that gave him control of the 53-man roster.
With Frazier, no such clause is known to exist.
Makes one wonder if Leslie has any say in any of the roster decisions to the point, will he be allowed to name his starters each and every week.
Frazier acknowledges that when it comes to the draft, Spielman and his scouts have very good knowledge of players, and thus he wouldn't have a problem going with their recommendation should there be a difference of opinion. Spielman, meanwhile, knows the importance of getting the coaches' input and not forcing a player on them.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
Re: Collaboration will be key for Frazier and Spielman
He had control of the 53 man roster? Really, I thought he only coached the guys Spielman gave him? That is earth shattering news to me.
