    Thought that I read somewhere a few years ago that BB commented to the fact that he had a good amount of respect for DR. Something about his knowledge/history of the game, understanding of the salary cap and willingness to compromise to do whats best for his client...

    Is there a correlation between his players being the first to sign a contract, and being the first to want to renegotiate a new contract for his clients before the original contract is finished?

    Seriously, Rosenhaus has more notoriety among football fans simply because he is the most well known agent. A lot of fans probably couldn't even name one other agent if asked. There are many other agents that are far more likely to not work out a deal in a timely manner, represent a player that holds out, demands a trade, or sits out while demanding a new contract. Because Rosenhaus is the most well known agent, he is the one fans associate with being difficult to work with, simply because fans want to see players sign, report on time, and not hold out. Agents such as Tom Condon and Eugene Parker seem to be much more difficult for teams to work with than Rosenhaus, in my opinion.

    With deep pocketed agents like Rosenhaus, they don't sweat the small change. They don't need to go tooth and nail early on.

    Much more important to get his players settled and not worrying about contracts. That way they can focus on football.

    What happens when players ignore other distractions and focus on football early?
