Headline NFL Players Sports Agents

On To The Next One: Terrence Cody

With the #57 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens selected Terrence Cody, a nose tackle from the University of Alabama.  On draft day, he was represented by Alvin Keels of Corporate Athletic Management.  Keels was President of Global Management Group prior to merging his firm with start-up Corporate Athletic Management, and he is no stranger to representing large football players (see: Andre Smith).

However, strike Cody off of Keels list of larger than life clients.  Cody has switched from Corporate Athletic Management to Athletes First.  And apparently, Cody has also slimmed down a bit.
