Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast Ep.39: Daniel Simpkins, Footballguys and Evaluating Off-Field Behavior

Footballguys writer Daniel Simpkins, a therapist by trade, joins Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast for a conversation about evaluating and addressing the off-field incidents of pro football players and the NFL’s progress with handling societal issues as well as thoughts about background evaluations of pro prospects. 

Daniel Simpkins (@xfantasyphoenix on Twitter) pens the weekly feature on prognosticating future free agent games, Waivers of the Future at is a social worker who practices therapy as his profession. Simpkins has the perspective of a professional who has worked with patients convicted of violent crimes.

He graciously joined me for a conversation about criminal behavior that some NFL players engage in (like the rest of the world) that generates public outrage. We discuss what’s involved with Daniel’s work to provide worthwhile treatment that leads to behavior change, the pro football news cycle’s treatment of these issues, and his thoughts on the NFL’s handling of off-field issues and the character evaluation process of the NFL Draft cycle.
