in the past 10 days he has done $255,000,000 worth of deals. (i think nfl network said 64 mil guaranteed.) i forget what minimum agent pay is exactly, but im pretty sure its 3-5%.

but he is a huge jackass. All he does is ruin franchises buy making them over pay there playershe never held a gun to the owners heads. notice how the rooneys dont deal with many of his clients?

actually i wonder how many steelers he represents. i know its not many (probably 0). i cant think of 1. it seems he is disliked by many but hes got a killer job, is shrewd, and does quite well at his profession. no one ever said the business side of the nfl is gumballs and ice cream

Cant say he's not out there trying to earn his keep.

Drew is excellent at what he does - he drives a hard bargain and I think he does well by his players.

When you compare the way he goes about business to the Poston Bros.....well...there is no comparison.

As Tony says, no-one forces franchises to deal with the players he represents(unless its someone on the current roster).

Its a business - teams are mostly trying to pay the player the least possible for his services and Rosenhaus (and his ilk) is pulling the opposite way.

Thats how deals are made.

I think his next big deal is going to be with Frank Gore - apparently the 49ers want to get him re-signed before his rookie deal finishes.

He is an awesome back.

I found this on Wikipedia.holy shit. nice (and informative) find. i knew he had alot of clients but most of those are high profile players. without doing all the research and math myself, im gonna say drew has negotiated about
$2,000,000,000 (yes, thats BILLION) worth of deals.

so his gross earnings are probably between 60-100 mil. not too shabby for crunching numbers and brokering deals. and just think, he can keep doing this for the next 20-30 years if he wants.

hes freakishly rich.. espn did a bit on him a year or two ago and he lives like a king.. hes not married and doesnt have a gf, just business... although im sure he gets plenty with his fortune.

The only reason we really know who he is,is because of the Terell Owens saga in Philly.

Drew didn't broker TO's original deal in the City of Brotherly Hate,so he got exactly nothing from that contract.

Also,Drew rarley represents someone who isn't (a) a first or second round selection,or (b) already a star.Anyone projected after round two isn't gonna get him the monet he desires.

Agents are capped at 3-4%, but they get up to 15% of endorsements, and THAT's where the real money is. Endorsements are what kept Michael Jordan in Chicago, and are what will probably get LeBron to billionaire status.

Unfortunately, agents and powerful players unions have combined forces to create a multi-headed Hydra of greed. Take A-Rod. He makes $44,000 every time he steps into the batters box. I'm sorry, but there is no human worth that kind of money to play a game. We keep hearing about how there HAS to be a market adjustment, but it hasn't happened in any sport other than maybe hockey.
