Various sources are reporting that big cry baby disgruntled Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin has fired super-agent Drew Rosenhaus. Rosenhaus released a statement essentially confirming his termination via Twitter, as super-agents are wont to do. Just last month Karlos Dansby also fired his long term agent, Kirk Wood; however, unlike Boldin, Dansby has a very good shot of getting his contract redone. What can we learn recklessly speculate from these seemingly unrelated firings? Rod Graves is a remorseless killer of agents (although in light of John Clayton putting the Cards 16th in ESPN’S May Power Rankings, perhaps killer clown is more like it).
The firing is somewhat surprising given that in recent weeks Rosenhaus had been very publicly demanding that the Cardinals trade or rework Boldin’s contract, despite having 3 years remaining on his current deal. Earlier in the off season, Rosenhaus even went so far as to propose a contract to the Cardinals, but because Boldin had no leverage to make said proposal it had about the same chance of success as Scott Howard’s unilateral offer to star in a big budget shot-by-shot remake of Teen Wolf (with Howard as Chubbs). If Boldin really wants a new deal maybe he should consider hiring this guy:
