PFT Calls Pasquarelli a Shameless Ho
Takes one to know one.......
LEN CONTINUES TO PIMP
We've gotten to the point where we're pretty much numb to Len Pasquarelli's kiss-agent-ass-in-order-to-make-my-job-easier routine, but that doesn't stop us from listening when a league insider contacts us with concerns regarding Len's gratuitous slurping on a guy in order to keep the inside information coming.
Most recently, our network of insiders has noticed two such examples.
The first one came when Len wrote a puff-piece on cornerback Dennis Weathersby, a client of agent Gary Uberstine, who is as suspected friend of Len.
Weathersby has been out of the league since a serious automobile accident in April 2004. But now Weathersby is looking to get back into the game, and Len does his best to beat the bushes (and not just in search of that fumbled fudgesicle): "It will take a team with a lot of guts to gamble on him now, given his medical background, but word is that Weathersby is running well and is in excellent condition. The search for cornerbacks in the NFL, especially cover guys with size, is a never-ending one. Maybe it will lead some team to Weathersby, who is all but ready to work out and eager to try to restart his career."
Len ignores, however, that Weathersby's non-medical background remains an even bigger concern for plenty of teams, even before he was shot and lost half of the blood in his body prior to the 2003 draft.
"This guy was an absolute turd coming out [of Oregon State]," said one source. "Everyone at the school killed the kid. . . . He has no friends anywhere on the team. Teammates disliked him, coaches, trainers. [He] consistently quit on his teammates."
But after spending the first pick in the fourth round on Weathersby, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said he was satisfied that Weathersby is not a "character problem."
Still, Weathersby was charged with assault while at Oregon State, and there are accounts of Weathersby quitting on the team during a game.
"In the middle of a game against USC, he took himself out of the game, claiming he was dehydrated," said a league source. "The trainers ran tests, iced him, and couldn't find anything. Then he said he had to take a dump. He went into the locker room and stayed there. They had to send trainers in to get him . . . and found him pacing the locker room."
The source estimates that 75 percent of teams removed Weathersby from their draft boards.
Len also sticks his nose into the anal cleft of agent Joe Linta in his recent piece regarding the signing (drum roll, please) of a fourth-round draft pick, Hofstra offensive lineman Harry Colon.
"Have you ever seen so much detail in a piece about a f--king fourth-round pick?" said the source. "Len's article gave everything but the kid's mother's maiden name. I'm not looking to hit Joe at all. I'm just making the point of how shameless we know Len is."
