Re: What's up with these players blaming agents for falling in the draft?
I don't know the details, but if the agent had been telling him that he was a top 5 pick, if he was "guaranteeing" that he'd be selected by the fifth selection... Then he wasn't, I don't have a problem with firing him.
For all I know, his agent was calling him every other day blowing smoke, talking about, "I just got off the phone with so & so, they're looking at you & Mingo. They like Mingo, but they really like you. By the end of the week, I'll make them forget Mingo."
I mean I don't know, the agent has to string this guy along from the end of the college bowl season until signing day. Who knows what kind of honey he's spinning.
Now Millner & Smith are among the few rookies that can say, "Don't lie to me. I fired my last agent for lying."
