On To The Next One: Joe Haden

Drew Rosenhaus just lost LeSean McCoy of the Philadelphia Eagles for the second time in a matter of roughly a month.  But as Rosenhaus loses one great client, he gains another.  Actually, the signing of this former Florida Gator happened a couple of weeks ago.

Rosenhaus is now the agent of Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden.  Haden was previously represented by Malik Shareef, a Washington D.C. attorney who represents athletes through his DSI Sports entity.  Shareef also represents 2011 NFL Draft picks Ryan Williams (#38 overall taken by the Arizona Cardinals) and Rashad Carmichael (#127 overall taken by the Houston Texans).  Shareef’s season got off to a rough start when Ryan Williams went down with a season-ending injury.  The additional loss of Haden must be tough to swallow.

“I guess [Haden] felt like he needed someone bigger to represent him,” said Shareef.  While Shareef is shocked by the switch in representation, he said that he will treat it as a learning experience.

    This saddens me for a number of reasons. With that type of client list, I’m not sure how Drew can actually make a connection with his players.
