Back in 2005, agent Drew Rosenhaus, Terrell Owens, and the Eagles became embroiled in perhaps the ugliest player-team dispute of the last decade.
Speaking on PFT Live Tuesday, Rosenhaus said that he would do a lot of things differently during the T.O. saga. He says he’s learned from those mistakes and will apply those lessons to upcoming talks with the Eagles concerning his client DeSean Jackson.
“Everybody learns, Mike,” Rosenhaus told Florio. “One of the things I realized with the Eagles is that there’s an approach that works with them and an approach that doesn’t work. And the approach that doesn’t work is to try and strongarm them and allow it to become public and take them on.”
We’ve heard from some Philly media who have speculated Jackson will hold out of camp this year (if there is one), but perhaps these words are an indication that a scorched Earth approach isn’t the plan.
Rosenhaus talks more below about his evolving relationship with the team.
