That Princeton grad studied Psychology. Yes, it's impressive that some of these players have graduated from very well known institutions, however being a Princeton graduate doesn't mean that you are knowledgeable about EVERYTHING. As far as I know, George Parros is the only player in the league that has a degree from an impressive university AND his major is relevant enough to be applied to this situation. However, his major doesn't make him a guru on how to negotiate but if I had to choose players that I'm certain can understand the economics and the numbers without someone explaining it to him, George Parros would be the only name I could come up with.
