On To The Next One: Brian Cushing

Yesterday, Adam Schefter reported that Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing recently signed with Drew Rosenhaus of Rosenhaus Sports Representation.  Cushing was formerly represented by Creative Artists Agency (CAA).

Cushing was a part of CAA’s fantastic 2009 Draft Class, which included Matthew Stafford, Jason Smith, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Knowshon Moreno, Brian Orakpo, Malcolm Jenkins, Josh Freeman, and Jeremy Maclin.  Read that list again – all represented by the same agency.  Strike Cushing off that list and add him to the huge RSR arsenal.
