LeSean McCoy Is On To The Same One (Drew Rosenhaus)

File this under absolute mess.  Seriously.  This legitimately bothers me.  Here comes a necessary LeSean McCoy timeline:

  • 10/10/11 – I reported that LeSean McCoy fired Drew Rosenhaus the prior week (including filing the NFLPA paperwork officially terminate the relationship), but rescinded the paperwork within 24 hours and decided to stay with Rosenhaus.
  • 10/11/11 – I noted that LeSean McCoy was rumored to have been influenced by Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Mike Vick, to leave Rosenhaus and sign with Vick’s agent, Joel Segal of Lagardère Unlimited.
  • 11/7/11 – LeSean McCoy again fired Rosenhaus.
  • 11/13/11Philly Sports Daily reported that McCoy has re-signed Rosenhaus once again.

Quite a few people have stated that McCoy interviewed agents Joel Segal, J.R. Rickert and Eugene Parker during the most recent period that McCoy fired Rosenhaus.  All along, I had assumed that McCoy would end up with Segal, but in a move that no one could have predicted, McCoy will apparently go back to being a Rosenhaus client for the third time in his short career.

I spoke to one individual with a major agency in an effort to confirm that McCoy has, in fact, gone back to Rosenhaus.  He said that from everything he understands, McCoy is once again a Rosenhaus Sports Representation client, and added, “what a mess.”  Agreed.

One reply on “LeSean McCoy Is On To The Same One (Drew Rosenhaus)”

Drew Rosenhaus is everything that is despicable about agents-all that makes you sick and ashamed of what you do if you represent athletes. I’m tired of apologizing for the likes of him. How did he get him back? How do you think? Crawled on his belly but that is his normal way of slithering around. On Twitter.
