As an ESPN NFL reporter speculated where a big-name free agent would land, Chris Dingman smiled because he knew the location.
Dingman, who is in charge of The Dingman Group, is not a rival reporter or a sports agent. As a man behind the scenes he finds out some of the transactions before they are reported. He specializes in a unique business. He relocates athletes, helping them find new homes, move, transport cars and other off-the-field details that go with joining a new team.
For the sake of privacy, Dingman could not reveal the free agent he smiled about during the speculation, only that the NFL player relocated to Pennsylvania.
Dingman's been at it since 2006. But this year is different for sure. He has been working with dozens of NFL players – some of the top free agents – doing his best to provide a smooth transition during such a hectic season.
