Been a while since I posted a blog. This is the slow time of the year. Most players are on vacation and there really isn’t much action until July when training camps open up. The biggest news I can come up with is that Drew Rosenhaus announced via his twitter account that he has signed Raiders OT Mario Henderson.
Tweet 1: "We are pleased to announce that we have signed Mario Henderson, starting left tackle of the Oakland Raiders as a new client."
Tweet 2: "Mario is a rising start at his position and we are excited to work with him. He is a FSU alum and played high school ball at For Myers."
This is interesting for a couple reason. One, Rosenhaus made a point to call Mario the starting left tackle. Two, Rosenhaus said Mario is a rising star. These are normal kinds of things for an agent to say. However, Rosenhaus has an uncanny ability to spot NFL talent. He may even have scouts working for him or he knows a lot of talent evaluators. Either way, Rosenhaus doesn’t sign many scrubs.
This is a clear indication Mario Henderson desires to be the starting Left Tackle. Agents are a players mouth-piece. If he performs there, he could be owed a large payday next season. Rosehaus is the kind of guy who can get that for him.
