On To The Next One: Harry Douglas
File this one under the “a week late” column. Exactly a week ago, Jason La Canfora of NFL.com tweeted that Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas changed representation and signed with Todd France. Douglas was formerly represented by David Rich of Rich Sports Management. I will say that I like the fact that Rich lists the states he is registered as an agent in (Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Tennessee, and Michigan), at the very top of his website. However, he has had at least a week to take down the Harry Douglas player profile.
Douglas played his college ball at the University of Louisville, which Rich lists as a city where his company has an office. In his third season with the Atlanta Falcons, Douglas has become a bigger part of the Atlanta offense, and may have wanted a better known football agent. Further, it probably does not hurt that France is based in Atlanta. Douglas is not yet a superstar, with only 4 receptions in 2 games this season, but many believe that he has the potential to be the recipient of more passes in the near future.
