Remember when Dez Bryant was ruled ineligible to play football for Oklahoma State University after lying to the NCAA about going to Deion Sanders’ house and training at his facility? Back then, in 2009, Bryant had a strong relationship with Sanders. It was also a well known fact that Sanders had a very close relationship with sports agent Eugene Parker of Maximum Sports Management. No one was surprised when Bryant eventually made it clear that he was signing with Parker and Maximum Sports Management to represent him in the NFL Draft.
Bryant was selected by the Dallas Cowboys as the #24 overall pick in 2010. The Cowboys signed him to a five year contract worth up to $11.8 million, including $8.5 million guaranteed. With many years left in his rookie contract, Bryant has fired Parker and signed with Drew Rosenhaus of Rosenhaus Sports Representation.
Rosenhaus just seems to have a knack for scooping up players prior to them signing their second contracts (where the real money starts to be made). Don’t be surprised if you start to hear about negotiations between Bryant and the Cowboys regarding the renegotiation of Bryant’s rookie contract.
