Roquan Smith wants to move out of Chicago.

The two sides were unable to reach an agreement on an extension and have since requested a trade.

Usually in a situation like this, the team will either call the other teams to assess the business interest or tell the player that they are not trading him.

But something interesting is going on in this specific Roquan Smith trading situation.

According to one report, someone representing Smith is calling on teams to assess business interests on Smith's behalf.

The point is that the representative is reportedly not an NFLPA-certified agent.

The second problem is that Smith is not allowed to seek trade, which could lead to tampering problems.

"Someone who claims to represent Rokan Smith is calling on teams to measure business interests,

Even if the Bears didn't allow Smith to trade," Pro Football Talk said.

Usually it is a team that gets in trouble for manipulating situations.

But it is reportedly a representative of Rokan Smith who initiated the contact.

This is a somewhat unprecedented situation.

It will be interesting to see how the NFL reacts here.

Given that the tampering has been acted upon recently, this situation will undoubtedly be of interest to the league.
