Before the NFL lockout ended, Drew Rosenhaus had plenty of free time on his hands. The NFL agent spent much of that time at charity events organized by players he represents. One such event was Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy’s Shady Community day in Harrisburg, Pa.
“I’ve been spending a lot of time visiting my clients. LeSean is giving back to the community, so I’m here to support him. I was with DeSean [Jackson] doing the same thing last night, travelling around, watching our clients train, just supporting our guys during the lockout,” he told Class Act Sports exclusively.
While some may think this was a burden on Rosenhaus, he was more than happy to do it.
“I really am pleased with the work that they are both doing. I think the NFL has so many great guys that give so much to their communities that are great role models. I’m happy to be here promoting it with them,” Rosenhaus said.
Rosenhaus has many high-profile clients, including Plaxico Burress, Terrell Owens and Frank Gore. And supporting his players as much as he does helps to enhance his reputation.
“I think it’s important to be hands-on as an agent. The guys like for me to help them with these events, come and lend my expertise my support. The guys are family to me, they are my good friends, so any time I can show my commitment to seeing guys doing great things like this, I am always happy to do that,” Rosenhaus told Class Act Sports.
And when the NFL lockout finally ended in the summer of 2011, it was back to work for Rosenhaus, contacting his clients and getting them new contracts.
“I just get along well with all my clients the same. I have a lot of experience. I have been doing this for 23 years. I specialize in football players only, so the combination of experience hard work and dedication has helped me be successful,” he said.
