Default Inside look at agents

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...#ixzz12Aj2AFr5

An interesting read on agents and football players.

A couple observations:

I'm a little skeptical of the agent's motives, but I think there has to be some truth to this.

The Mane hammers on Mel Kiper quite a bit and there is a mention of him giving more favorable ratings to players who have agents Kiper is friends with.

I knew agents paid players, but I'm shocked how widespread the author makes it seem.

The agent is especially proud of tricking the Broncos into drafting Clarett.

Almost instantly we got some new clients, including troubled Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett (for whom we did some of our best work; a player no team should have touched got taken in the third round).

Kind of odd considering Clarett said "no" to a signing bonus and instead signed a contract that essentially dictated that his agents didn't make a dime on that signing.
