Headline NFL Players Sports Agents

On To The Next One: Dustin Keller

I had been hearing rumors of a switch of representation for New York Jets tightend Dustin Keller for a couple of weeks now, but could not get it confirmed.  Luckily, Liz Mullen of SportsBusiness Journal did the dirty work and had Drew Rosenhaus admit to the change.

Keller was drafted by the Jets with pick #30 of the 1st round in the 2008 NFL Draft.  The former Purdue Boilermaker was represented by the team of Eugene Parker, Roosevelt Barnes, and Paul Lawrence at Maximum Sports Management as he was entering the Draft.  He stuck by that team (minus Paul Lawrence, who passed away earlier this year) until recently, when Keller made the switch to Rosenhaus Sports Representation.

Through 1 regular season game in 2011, Keller has 5 receptions for 61 yards and 1 touchdown.
