Perhaps it was just a matter of time before a big-name NFL agent was drawn into the investigation of agents providing impermissible benefits to North Carolina football players, but the name that has eventually been dropped is among the biggest: Drew Rosenhaus.
Details are sketchy in the documents released to McClatchy newspapers in North Carolina, but this portion of the story could cause ripples.
Michael Katz, who works with a major agency, Rosenhaus Sports, which has the largest number of NFL clients.
The documents say Katz provided wristbands for players to attend a pool party.
Compared to some of the other agent activities in AgentGate, even those in the documents, what Katz did seems to be relatively low on the scale of rule-breaking. Still, the NFL can’t be thrilled to see its most prominent player advocate dragged into the investigation.
