Agent Drew Rosenhaus will be profiled on Sunday's edition of "60 Minutes" (CBS, 7-8 p.m.) and expect plenty of moxie from the man who represents more NFL players than any other.
“I really believe that the NFL would fall apart without me,” Rosenhaus says on the show, according to a CBS press release. “That may sound cocky, that may sound arrogant, but I amtelling you the truth.”
But there is a comment from Rosenhaus in the CBS release that might apply to the Browns' current saga with disgruntled running back Peyton Hillis, who is making the NFL minimum $600,000 this season and is seeking a contract extension. (The Madden cover boy, Hillis is not represented by Rosenhaus, but by Kennard McGuire.)
“When it breaks down between the team and the player, the agent is there to pick up those pieces,” Rosenhaus says, according to CBS. “If a guy says ‘I want to be traded; I hate this team. I hate this coach,’ I say to the player, 'Tell me,don’t tell the coach. I don’t want you to ruin your relationship with the team. Come to me.’”
