Connor Halliday's recovery and quest for the NFL is featured in a cable TV series. Just because we know the ending doesn't make the journey any less extraordinary...

We've all heard his story. Connor Halliday breaks his leg in a game against USC and his dream of going to the NFL is seemingly ended. He works hard to recover, gets a free agent contract and, for whatever reason, decides to walk away.

Just because we know how it ends doesn't make the journey any less special. The man broke his leg and 6 months later got an NFL contract. Any way that you say it, it's a compelling tale.

All this season, the story has been told on a the Esquire Network cable channel. The show is called "The Agent". It's a documentary-reality show following a group of sport agents and their quest in finding, signing, training, and representing professional athletes.

One of the athlete and agent relationships the show follows is the one Connor Halliday has with his agent Peter Schaffer. From how he found Halliday to watching him get injured and beyond, it tells the story of how their relationship grows.

In the episode that aired last night, Halliday had rehabbed and was getting ready for WSU's pro day. He's a teaser look at the show.

That episode aired last night, but there are constant re-airs on the Esquire Network. If you have cable, you can even watch it on demand. You can watch it online here, as long as you get the network and authenticate with you provider's login.

Now, the next step, is finding where the Esquire Network is on your TV. That's probably the hardest part.
