Prior to Dynasty Athlete Representation bringing in Martin Fischman to head its Football Division, the company was not involved in representing professional football players. That was not always the case, though. At one point in time, my agency had signed a few NFL hopefuls, including Rulon Davis, a former defensive end from California Berkeley. Rulon was signed by the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2009 and later joined the Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad. Before he even signed with the Broncos, he had left my company to sign with Steve Caric of Caric Sports Management.
At the time, I was pissed. I had pumped money into Rulon’s travel and the start of his training, only for him to leave my company for someone else. It also gave me a bad impression of Caric, although, now I realize that he probably had no ill will. I think it is important to realize that just because a player leaves an agent, that does not mean that it was a case of client stealing. In fact, Caric had no obligation to be cordial after the switch, yet he went out of his way to even pay back a portion of the money we laid out for Rulon prior to his switch.
Thus, I have great pleasure in seeing Caric’s rise up the ranks as a football agent. He and his company were recently favorably featured in the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The article talks about his current NFL clients and his five NFL Draft eligible clients, including University of Washington’s Mason Foster, who is likely to be a 2nd or 3rd rounder. Not bad for a guy who started his own company only 3 years ago. And about working out of Las Vegas…
Operating a sports agency in Las Vegas has its benefits.
“Clients love to come here. It’s a great place to entertain,” Caric said.
