    He should've had an agent. If he did, he'd likely be employed by now. Eh

    He'd be employed now, if his ego would let him take a back-up role, and try to earn a starting job.

    I'm very disappointed in how he's handled his career.

    I agree, but that is what an agent is for. To get a feel from what the league thinks of him and to manage his career. That way he'd only have to deal with football and not whining about teams not picking him up.

    Eh, it's whatever.

    Don't we all lament what agents have done to the game? Personally, I'd rather see agents go the way of the dodo.

    Just call David Carr's agent, as if he can find work for him......

    Some agents have too much power that they abuse. I think run of the mill agents may help out run of the mill players. Many guys coming into the league are naïve in the ways of business.

    If no one hires you, is it really a retirement?
