One longtime NFL agent wonders where the business is headed – The Washington Post

It’s also relatively common for agents to steal players from one another. Once, shortly after the draft, Ross said another agent offered one of his non-first-round picks $300,000 to jump ship. The player asked Ross to match it, and Ross explained that, even at 3 percent, he’d still be taking a $180,000 loss over the next four years. Another time, Ross called a client on Christmas Eve to discover the player, on the verge of his second contract, was no longer a client. Apparently, Ross hadn’t got the letter.
