Yesterday, I tweeted that DeSean Jackson of the Philadelphia Eagles dropped DeBartolo Sports as his representation and picked up Rosenhaus Sports. Jackson is on pace to break his impressive stat-line that he posted in his first year in the league. Last year, he barely missed breaking 1,000 yards receiving, but only caught two touchdowns. This year, in half as many games, DeSean has double the amount of TDs as last year and looks like he will break the 1,000 yard mark (as long as he remains healthy).
This is not the first young receiver to switch from DeBartolo to Rosenhaus this year. Back in July, former University of Florida standout, Louis Murphy made the jump. DeBartolo is known in the industry for its amazing job recruiting prospective clients. What is the reason that they are having a tough time retaining them? Two WRs lost to Rosenhaus in the same year cannot be something that they are happy about.
DeSean Jackson probably thought that he should have been picked higher than #49 in the 2008 draft, but why wait so long to drop his agent? Could he have been shopping this whole time? Next Question..
