Peyton Hillis Likely To Go Back To Jimmy Sexton And Sign With CAA

It appears that sports agent connoisseur Peyton Hillis is almost ready to announce who his fourth agent will be.  Technically, it will only be his third agent, because Mike Florio of reports that Hillis is going to sign with his original agent, Jimmy Sexton.  The only difference is that Sexton is no longer with SportsTrust Advisors (where Pat Dye, Jr. remains as its NFLPA certified Contract Advisor).  Instead, Hillis is signing with the new Jimmy Sexton of Creative Artists Agency (CAA).

As reported on Sports Agent Blog in the past, Hillis' second agent was Kelli Masters of KM Sports and his third, and most recent agent was Kennard McGuire.  Ben Dogra is rumored to be assisting Jimmy Sexton with the representation of Hillis.  Those guys over at CAA have their hands full with a slew of veteran clients and quite a few players under contract who should be hearing their names called on Day 1 of the 2012 NFL Draft.
