Report: Dez Bryant fires agent Drew Rosenhaus
Embattled Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant rehired the agent he originally signed with out of college and fired current agent Drew Rosenhaus, reports ESPN.com.
Eugene Parker helped Bryant negotiate a five-year deal, worth $11.8 million, but at the end of the 2011 season he changed agents in favor of Rosenhaus.
Bryant, entering his third season, has had his share of legal trouble since entering the league.
Currently, the Dallas County district attorney’s office is reviewing a misdemeanor charge against Bryant for assaulting his mother. Bryant and his mother have said nothing happened in terms of violence during a July 14 incident.
Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Bryant will either adhere to the rules or be let go.
“I’m as firm as I can be,” Jones told ESPN.com. “I don’t know when I’ve ever been firmer. He’s in a situation where he has some responsibilities and consequences that will result in change.”
