Default Walker Gives Rosenhaus the Boot


"Next Question!"

Quote:
Green Bay - Green Bay Packers wide receiver Javon Walker has been conducting personal business on his own pretty much since the start of the regular season, but according to a source close to the NFL Players Association he has officially parted ways with agent Drew Rosenhaus.

In order to terminate their business agreement, Walker has to file papers with the union declaring his intentions, which he apparently did. Other agents interested in recruiting Walker are not allowed to speak to him about contractual matters as long as he has an agreement with a specific agent, but according to the source Walker is officially no longer associated with Rosenhaus.

Walker was unavailable for comment and Rosenhaus did not return a phone message seeking comment. Packers general manager Ted Thompson was out of town and also unavailable for comment.

Rosenhaus signed Walker less than a year ago and led him through a tumultuous off-season in which the Packers receiver boycotted off-season workouts and threatened to hold out from training camp in the hopes of forcing the team to renegotiate his contract. The Packers did not budge and Walker reported to training camp under the terms of the deal he signed as a rookie in 2002.

He has one year left on that contract after this season.

Walker tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the season opener against Detroit and was placed on injured reserve.

Rosenhaus became a hated figure among some Packers fans who thought he was responsible for holding Walker out of off-season activities. Most recently, Rosenhaus has been involved in defending Philadelphia receiver Terrell Owens, who was suspended for four games and deactivated for the rest of the season because of conduct detrimental to the team.

Several times this fall, Walker disputed rumors that he and Rosenhaus had split.

Hopefully its a continuing trend amongst NFL players...

Well whatever is best for him and his family is probably a solid choice. I cannot hate on Rosenhaus because above all he usually gets the job done. Most of the time he gets the new contract, becauce that is the only way he gets paid.

Props to Walker. If TO had someone really looking out for his best interests, he wouldn't be in the position he is right now.

Hopefully more players will see what an a$s Rosenhaus is. Lee Steinberg and others prove that you don't have to be an immature publicity hound to do your job well.

Walker is still waiting for Favre to give him the $10 million guaranteed he would have gotten if he held out and not been a good guy and listened to Favre...

The REAL important question:

Can Walker afford to feed his family AND purchase a snazzy business suit with his salary?

according to many peeps, dropping rosenhaus is as popular as entering the draft.
