On To The Next One: Adam Goldberg
At the end of last week, I reported that two players selected in the 2011 NFL Draft had left their agents for Drew Rosenhaus, even though the NFL Lockout is still very much in effect and there are no rookie contracts being negotiated or signed. Allen Bailey dropped Terry Watson for Rosenhaus and Jason Pinkston said goodbye to Octagon in favor of Rosenhaus Sports Representation (RSR).
But many veterans have also ditching their agents for Rosenhaus and RSR. If this keeps up, maybe the National Football League Players Association will eventually re-certify as Rosenhaus’ agency, since he will be representing the entire league (please take that in jest).
Ahmad Bradshaw recently changed over from Craig Domann of Domann & Pittman to Drew Rosenhaus, and now veteran offensive tackle Adam Goldberg of the St. Louis Rams has also signed with Rosenhaus. My notes show that Goldberg used to be represented by Joe Linta.
Goldberg, the former undrafted free agent who played his college ball at Wyoming, would be a fan of our Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Ups if he knew about him (yes, Goldberg is Jewish). He just finished playing through a 2-year, $1.8 million deal and will be using the services of Rosenhaus to get him a new contract once this Lockout goes away.
