Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Orie Lemon has terminated his standard representation agreement with football agent Peter Schaffer and signed with Jordan Woy of Willis & Woy Sports Group.  Lemon, an undrafted player from Oklahoma State University, was signed by the Dallas Cowboys before becoming a member of the Chiefs.  In 2013, he played in five regular season games for the Cowboys, with his strongest output being Week 8 against the New York Giants when he combined for four tackles.

“I really liked the personal attention Jordan [Woy], Aaron [Zack] and their team provide along with their continued support with opportunities off the field,” said Lemon to Sports Agent Blog.

“We have known Orie since his days at Oklahoma St.,” said Woy.  “He is a high quality young man and we are excited to have him as part of Willis-Woy Sports Group.”
