Sources Indicate That LeSean McCoy Was Almost A Joel Segal Client

Yesterday, I reported that LeSean “Shady” McCoy was very close to being “on to the next one.”  He fired his agent Drew Rosenhaus only to re-hire him one day later.  After publishing the story, multiple sources have informed me that McCoy was not having second thoughts about Rosenhaus based on Rosenhaus’ culinary preference of Chickie & Pete’s.  Instead, those sources have indicated that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback  Mike Vick made a strong effort to get McCoy to switch to Vick’s agent – Joel Segal of Lagardère Unlimited.

In fact, after McCoy filed his termination letter with the NFLPA, which effectively separated McCoy from Rosenhaus (albeit for roughly 24 hours), the writing seemed to be on the wall that McCoy would end up as a Segal client.  But relentless Rosenhaus did not give up.  He pursued the re-signing of his client and McCoy eventually came back to the self-proclaimed shark.
