The off-season de el Rosenhaus continues. Drew Rosenhaus has picked up yet another player who was taken in the 2011 NFL Draft. Former University of North Carolina wide-receiver Greg Little has officially made the switch from Octagon to Rosenhaus Sports Representation. Little was selected in the 2nd round (#59 overall) by the Cleveland Browns. If my count is correct, based on the Little signing, Rosenhaus now represents 17 players selected in the 2011 NFL Draft.
As Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com notes, Little is joining a deep receiving corp at Rosenhaus Sports Representation. Rosenhaus represents Plaxico Burress, DeSean Jackson, Chad Ochocinco, Santana Moss, Sidney Rice, Bernard Berrian, and Terrell Owens.
But how exactly is Rosenhaus signing all of these players during this NFL Lockout offseason? One agent texted me yesterday providing his explanation. This agent claims that Rosenhaus is providing “Lockout Loans” for veterans at $150,000 a pop. The agent did not provide any information about loans offered to rookies selected in the 2011 Draft, but it is assumed that he is offering them some sort of lockout loan, even if it is for much less than what he is providing his veteran clients.
Last, do not be surprised if we have an On To The Next One post soon concerning Brandon Spikes switching to Rosenhaus. I recently heard about his wild demands to former agent Terry Watson.
