Yesterday, it was reported that there may be a third player from a third school who was a part of a trip to South Beach that could be linked to a sports agent and/or financial planners. The player is Marcel Dareus of the University of Alabama, who is rated as a top prospect in the 2011 NFL Draft Class. But this post is not about Dareus. Instead, it is about a former Alabama player – Javier Arenas.
Arenas was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. At that point in time, he was represented by Lamont Smith of All Pro Sports & Entertainment. Arenas recently fired Smith, waited the requisite five days before signing a new agent, and then hired Hadley Engelhard of Enter-Sports Management. Engelhard also represents Maurice Leggett, who is a Cornerback for the Chiefs. Click here for the Enter-Sports full client list.
Many expect the second and first rounders to start signing at a more rapid pace in the near future. That will mean that Engelhard should be earning a pretty quick payday. While Engelhard is happy with the timing of this addition, Smith must be slightly enraged.
