On To The Next One: Craig Robertson
Former North Texas and current Cleveland Brows linebacker Craig Robertson has changed agencies. Robertson was formerly represented by Vincent Calo of THE GAME Sports Management & Media, LLC. He is now represented by Jonathan Perzley and Brian Mackler of Sportstars, Inc.
Robertson was one of five NFL clients listed on THE GAME Sports Management & Media’s website. Others are John Hughes, Ben Garland, Kenny Stafford and James Nelson. The best of the pack was likely Robertson, who put together an impressive preseason and was praised by Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton roughly a month ago. “I think I classified him as the old Ronnie Lott, in the old days meaning the big strong safety,” said Horton in reference to Robertson. “He would be a strong safety in the old days. Now he is an inside ‘backer that can run as a three-down player. It’s just a space game now. It’s basketball. It spreads you out and creates space matchups. He is gifted, very sharp memory, very smart and he understands football and has the ability to change direction.”
That gifted, smart linebacker is now a Sportstars client. In a comment to Sports Agent Blog, Perzley said he thinks Robertson may be one of the best young cover middle-linebackers in the NFL.
