It’s wrong to fire an agent for slipping in the draft Dan Leberfeld

First Geno Smith reportedly fired his agent because he slipped to the second round.

Now, reportedly, Dee Milliner has fired his agent because he slipped to the ninth slot in the first round.

Obviously, they are free to fire and hire who they want.

However, it’s probably unfair to fire an agent for slipping in the draft, if that is indeed what happened in each case.

You can understand the frustration of a player not going as high as they would have liked, but it’s hard to blame agents for where a player is selected.

That is what you call, “killing the messenger.”
