According to a report filed by ESPN’s Mike Sando, Anquan Boldin has informed all interested parties that he intends to fire Drew Rosenhaus. In a statement issued to ESPN, Rosenhaus said:
“Regarding Anquan Boldin, let me say that I have great respect for him. I’m hopeful we can work this out and he can return to the Rosenhaus Sports family in the near future. We are proud to continue to represent his brother, D.J. Boldin. We would also like to take this opportunity to announce that we have signed Will Allen to a 2-year contract extension with the Dolphins worth $16.2 million. We are pleased to announce today that we have re-signed New Orleans Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey [to a representation agreement].”
So, Rosenhaus lost Boldin but got Shockey? Methinks that’s not really a good trade-off, but what do I know? I gave some dude one of my kidneys for a Klondike Bar.
All in all, kudos to Boldin for getting rid of one of the most arrogant and egotistical sumbitches in the world of professional sports. At least it gives Rosenhaus more time to update his Twitter thingamajobber.
Nevertheless, there is one thing I hope Boldin realizes: Rosenhaus WILL NOT BE IGNORED. Mark my words. How do I know this, you ask?
