A few weeks after his previous agent, Vincent Porter, was suspended by the NFLPA, New York Giants linebacker Devon Kennard has switched representation. His new agency, Select Sports Group, broke news of the switch via their Twitter account. Kennard racked up 35 total tackles, 4.5 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles during the 2014 season.
If you remember, the FBI recently arrested Kennard’s previous agent Vincent Porter. Porter, along with financial adviser Joseph Vaccaro, were charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud. The two reportedly were attempting to scam their clients out of millions of dollars in the purchase of 13 Burger King franchises.
All of Vincent Porter’s previous clients are likely to find new agents, if they haven’t already. Kennard now joins other notable players such as Johnny Manziel, Jordy Nelson, and Andy Dalton in choosing Select Sports Group for representation.
