Dez Switches Agents; Signs With Rosenhaus

While Dez Bryant still has three more years remaining on his contract after this year, don't be surprised if a renegotiation isn't too far away.

Especially since Bryant has changed agents, replacing Eugene Parker with Drew Rosenhaus, arguably the most visible sports agent in the NFL.

Bryant's ties to Deion Sanders likely led him to sign with Parker before being drafted. But Sanders, who has been more like a mentor for Bryant, has reportedly severed ties with the second-year receiver.

So it shouldn't come as a big surprise that Bryant is moving on to a new agent in Rosenhaus, who also represents Mike Jenkins and Kevin Ogletree. Rosenhaus did have Abram Elam as a client when he signed a one-year deal but no longer servers as his agent.

Bryant is just two seasons into a five-year, $11.8 million contract that included $8.5 million guaranteed. However, if the Cowboys have interest in keeping Laurent Robinson, who will be a free agent and could warrant starting receiver dollars, the club might want to redo Bryant's deal as well. It's likely Bryant and Rosenhaus won't be comfortable with being the third-highest paid receiver on the team behind Austin and Robinson.

Then again, the Cowboys might not even make a strong push for Robinson, or at least until after he tests the free-agent market.

Regardless of that situation, it's clear Bryant is already thinking about his next contract and has found the guy to help him get there.
