Bringing wisdom to sports – Truth to the game

NFL Sapient’s goal and purpose are to cater to what the fans want – the truth in matters, NFL opinions, and high-level analysis. So many high profile NFL insiders aren’t permitted to share certain information by the platforms they work for – ESPN and NFL Network particularly are very strict on what can be shared.

At NFL Sapient, there are no boundaries. There are no limits to the information that we can give you. We strive to bring you as close to the game as possible with the piece of media produced.

What NFL Sapient focuses on:

Breaking the game down so that you can understand it better.

Speaking unfiltered truth straight from the NFL and other league sources.

Bringing this information to you through video, print, and audio platforms.

Covering all aspects of the NFL and NFL roster building.

“My goal is to provide complete coverage of the National Football League and all avenues from which players can be selected. To the consumers, I want to simplify the happenings so that you can understand the game – on and off of the field better.”
