Myron Lewis = “Great Value”

May 12th, 2010

Joe’s not one to quote oily, agenda-driven player agents — especially off the record like some outfits.

But notorious oily player agent Drew Rosenhaus was in full Buccaneers love today on the local ESPN Radio affiliate, so Joe took notes.

Rosenhaus represents Kellen Winslow, Earnest Graham, E.J. Biggers and other Buccaneers, but his latest Tampa Bay client is the one he was gushing over today. That would be cornerback Myron Lewis.

In full contract negotiation mode, Rosenhaus called Mark Dominik an extraordinarily savvy executive, and Rosenhaus said he likes the way Raheem The Dream handles players.

Rosenhaus pointed out that Lewis missed his final college game at Vanderbilt before having arthroscopic knee surgery that kept him out of the Senior Bowl.

“If he plays in that [Senior Bowl], we’re probably talking about a late first round pick.” Rosenhaus said. “Mark Dominik got great value.”

Apparently, Rosenhaus must have strongly disagreed with the Cowboys’ rating of Lewis.

So there it is; oily player agent extraordinaire says the Bucs had a great draft.

    God bless Drew Rosenhaus. He is the best agent, not that I agree with all of his tactics, but the guy is pretty awesome when it comes to taking care of his players.

    “C’mon Dom, you know Myron is a 1’st round talent. We have to do better than that. Don’t you want to see him that first day in camp? He is worth every penny, I promise. You’ll have bookends with Talib. Look Dom, just cut that POS Clayton, pay Myron the difference, and I’ll kick back a cool mil your way. I’ll even throw in an extra year option on top, and no signing bonus. Whataya say Dom? Deal? Deal? C’mon, I’ll buy you a steak and titties. I love it here in Tampa. I think I’ll retire here, and become a sportscaster or something.”

    “Okay, okay, Drew you got me. Deal, but we ain’t going to one of those cheap joints, and your driving”

    “Dom, Dom, I wouldn’t have it any other way. By the way, who’s McCoy’s agent?

    This was like asking a waiter what is good on the menu. Come on, what did you expect him to say.

    Believe an agent looking to get paid or the Jerry Jones lead draft board????????

    I’ll take neither and trust the Bucs and several other GMs that said he is a 3rd to 5th round talent.

    If it was a little bit of a reach, so be it if he fits their style the best. As it were, they got great value, allegedly, with Price, Williams, & Watson.

    Who really cares though? In 2-3 eyars we will all know how the last 2 and next draft has gone.
