As we wait for the first puff of white smoke that will mark the first first-round rookie deal of the 2010 season, the first whiff of burning incense could be coming from the Bay Area.
Then again, maybe it’s simply covering up the smell of the marijuana.
Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area mentioned on his Twitter page that agent Drew Rosenhaus was at the 49ers’ facility on Tuesday. Rosenhaus recently signed offensive lineman Anthony Davis, the 11th overall pick in the draft, as a client.
Though Rosenhaus could have been present to discuss business on behalf of other Niners clients, we’ve previously heard that Davis was closing in on a deal before switching from Sunny Shah to Rosenhaus. So, in theory, it wouldn’t take all that long to finalize a contract.
Likewise, first-round deals typically culminate in a face-to-face meeting, with the agent typically making the trek to the team’s facility.
So stay tuned. I mean, what else are you doing? Watching the baseball game?
