Roc Nation Sports represented nine professional athletes as of last Friday.  Unfortunately, for the relatively newer division of Roc Nation, that number has shrunk to eight.

According to FOX Sports, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has left Roc Nation for his former agent, Drew Rosenhaus, of Rosenhaus Sports.  Brown had been with Rosenhaus when he made his NFL debut in 2010.  During his career, Rosenhaus has negotiated roughly $2 billion worth of contracts.

Sports Illustrated’s Monday Morning Quarterback recently profiled the super agent and his relationship with his cell phone, a short but insightful read.  It’s part of SI’s summer project that examines 95 artifacts which tell the story of the NFL.

This past year, Brown had his coming out party as he snagged 100-plus receptions for 1,499 yards and eight touchdowns.  His receptions and yards were both good for No. 2 in the league.
