On To The Next One: Jamaal Anderson
Yet another Pro Tect Management client has found new representation in the wake of Gary Wichard’s death. Wichard founded the company in 1980 and had a very hands-on approach with his clients. With his passing, former Pro Tect clients including Antonio Cromartie and Calais Campbell have switched agencies. Both of those players joined the large client roster of CAA Football, headed by Ben Dogra and Tom Condon. Jamaal Anderson has also made a switch, but he has chosen Lagardere Unlimited instead of CAA.
Anderson is a 6’6 289lb defensive end for the Atlanta Falcons. The former Arkansas Razorback is going into his 5th season with the team. He was drafted as someone who could increase the number of sacks, but in 4 years, has only racked up a total of 3.5. He is rather versatile, though, able to also play in the defensive tackle position. The Falcons and Lagardere hope Anderson can turn his career around in his 5th season and put up numbers that were expected when he was drafted 8th overall in 2007.
