Headline NFL Players Sports Agents

On To The Next One: London Fletcher

London Fletcher’s change of agents is a power move.  Per a report on SportsBusiness Journal, the linebacker for the Washington Redskins left the mighty Drew Rosenhaus of Rosenhaus Sports Representation for Creative Artists Agency (CAA).  While many On To The Next One posts are about a client switching from one agent to Rosenhaus, Fletcher took the opposite path, leaving Rosenhaus for a new agency.

Roughly 8 months ago, it was the other way around, with Brian Cushing dropping CAA in favor of Rosenhaus.  That said, it is rather rare to see a football player switch from one of the aforementioned agencies to the other.  Typically, a smaller name agent loses a client to either a CAA or a Rosenhaus type of entity.
