Holding Out For A Hero?

On June 29, I Want to be a Sports Agent contributor Paul Schackman wrote a Rookie Holdouts post, where he declared that “It is almost a guarantee that Jamarcus Russell will start this season, whether is it week 1 or three weeks in.” 2 months and a few days later, it looks like Mr. Schackman […]

Kudos, Schwartz and Feinsod

While I have recently been on the topic of rookies, agents, and rookie holdouts I think it would only be fair to mention the phenomenal job by Neil Schwartz and Jonathon Feinsod in getting the newest member of the New York Jets, Darelle Revis, a monster contract.
