Rosenhaus Bags Another Client

With the slow summer days of the NFL news cycle here, one source of information shows no signs of slowing down: Agent Drew Rosenhaus’ Twitter page.
Rosenhaus announced Monday that he has signed Oakland Raiders left tackle Mario Henderson as a new client.
Henderson, a third-round pick in 2007, held his own after taking over for Kwame Harris for the final three games of last season.  Henderson didn’t give up a sack as a starter, and JaMarcus Russell enjoyed the best stretch of his short career.
Left tackle has been a revolving door for Oakland since second overall pick Robert Gallery failed to stick at the position.   (It’s also been a turnstile for opposing pass rushers.)
Henderson will have to hold off free agent acquisition Khalif Barnes to finally give Oakland some stability. If Henderson can keep the job, a request for a new contract isn’t likely to be far behind.

    Gregg Rosenthal…
    Not bad at all so far. Seems like you deserve to be here (unlike some of this site’s other contributors). Keep up the good work.

    I agree. The subtle inclusion of the word “bag” in a headline about Drew Rosenhaus was excellent.

    Yes…11 career games and 5 career starts in the first two years of an NFL career, screams for a new agent and a renogotiation…….

    Khalif Barnes was part of the problem in Jacksonville last year. It wasn’t *just* the injuries on the inside.
    He was adequate with a beast like Manuwai next to him, but he was exposed as struggling to hold his own with Manuwai missing.

    You mean the same Robert Gallery that’s playing at a pro bowl level, jackass?

    I’m biased about Gallery as an Iowan, but he hasn’t been near the bust people seem to think. He’s started nearly every game in his career (missed 6 games in 2006 due to injury) and since moving to guard has been much better. It didn’t help that Gallery has had a new line coach almost every year due to the revolving door of coaches Al Davis brings in. Gallery never will live up to the number 2 pick but there have been far bigger busts (number 2 pick Ryan Leaf?). Also unlike most Raiders (or NFL players in general) Gallery has never had any legal issues or holdouts.
