Agent Drew Rosenhaus allegedly violated the NFL Players Associations regulations on agents by offering cash payments to an advisor of Dallas Cowboy wide receiver Dez Bryant.
According to a report by Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports, David Wells, a longtime friend and advisor of Bryant is accusing Rosenhaus of offering “a prohibited cash payment and trip to Miami in an effort to sign Bryant”
The alleged converstions took place via text messages between Wells and Rosenhaus.
Rosenhaus refused to answer questions regarding the alleged confrontation with Wells, referring to his classic answer of “no comment”. According to Cole: “During an hour-long interview with Yahoo! Sports, Rosenhaus answered “no comment” to 11 questions regarding his relationship with Bryant and/or Wells. Rosenhaus, who claims to represent more than 140 NFL players, cited the confidential nature of any agent-player relationship.”
The Miami area agent failed to secure Bryant as a client, as the former Oklahoma State state singed with agent Eugene Parker, the same agent that represents Michael Crabtree.
It is not clear at this time if Rosenhaus will receive punishment for the alleged accusations from Wells, however, this report does highlight the somewhat seedy nature of the recruiting process by agents of potential NFL stars from the college ranks.
