NFL Players Sports Agents

The Rams Need To Show Kennard The Money

I imagine that sports agent, Kennard McGuire, gets his fair share of people calling him Jerry Maguire.  Not only are their last names almost identical, but both the real agent and the fictional one represent football players.  Jerry struggled to maintain one demanding client, Kennard just had three make the 2009 Pro Bowl.  His latest acquisition: Torry Holt.

McGuire and his company, MS World, also represent Orlando Pace, who like Holt, is looking to restructure his contract.  I assume that a lot of discussions will go down starting this week at the NFL Combine.
