On To The Next One: Jared Odrick

While Randy Moss is On To The No One, Jared Odrick has actually fired his agent and hired a new one.  Odrick, the 28th overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, who was selected by the Miami Dolphins, has officially given Lamont Smith and Peter Schaffer of All Pro Sports & Entertainment (which has a nice new website, by the way) the boot in return for the Miami Shark, Drew Rosenhaus.

It’s hard to keep a Miami Dolphins client away from Rosenhaus.  He is based in South Florida, and represents 6 Dolphins by my latest count on the NFLPA website.  He also purchased his own weekly spot on Fox’s popular WSVN Channel 7 news program, and he has already brought on Odrick since Odrick made the switch.  It is tough for a company based in Colorado to compete with that.
