Headline NFL Players Sports Agents

On To The Next One: Jimmy Wilson

I think it is important to begin this post with an explanation as to why I have not spent time on this site posting, discussing, and/or analyzing the "List" floating around the internet, which contains a number of players who have recently fired Drew Rosenhaus. The "List" appears to be nothing more than a smear campaign generated by agents and journalists attempting to publicize terminations that are mostly old news. In fact, this website's "On To The Next One" column has covered many of the aforesaid filings. If and when players like Willis McGahee and Bryant McKinnie sign with new agents, I will write about it on Sports Agent Blog. Until then, I will respectfully distance myself from the pending industry saber battle in an effort to remain unbiased in my coverage.

With that explanation out of the way, I have confirmed that Drew Rosenhaus signed Miami Dolphins cornerback Jimmy Wilson. Wilson played his college ball at Montana prior to being a 7th round pick by the Dolphins in the 2011 NFL Draft. He is coming off of an impressive rookie campaign, which started better than it ended. Wilson is going into year two of a four year deal that was negotiated by his prior agent, Ken Staninger.
