NFLPA investigating Chicago agent

A very interesting report by Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago , who writes the NFL Players Association is investigating agent Ian Greengross and apparent runner Kenny Rogers.

Apparently, Rogers might have posed as an NFLPA representative in an attempt to influence players.

From Wright’s story:

Initially, Greengross, who heads up Game Sports and Entertainment, said, "not that I know of" when asked if he was aware of the NFLPA's investigation, adding that Rogers "doesn't work for me. I never paid him."

Later in the conversation, Greengross said that Rogers, who played college football at Mississippi State and for the Miami Dolphins during the 1987 strike, did work for him.

"I paid Kenny to work with some of my players," said Greengross, who according to his Facebook page represents Bears players Tommie Harris, Charles Tillman, Israel Idonije and Lance Briggs as a Chicago attorney. "He introduced me to a lot of coaches, and (I paid him) to review film of players and scout players. I paid him a flat fee. I never paid a percentage for referring players. That's disclosed on the NFLPA form (which is required of agents, who have business ties with people who have contact with any of the agent's clients)."


According to the story, Rogers might have misrepresented himself to a number of members of the 2010 NFL Draft class and NFL veterans like Chicago’s Danieal Manning and Marcus Harrison and St. Louis’ Keenan Burton.

At first, Greengross denied employing Rogers before admitting that he did. Then, he defended Rogers before distancing himself.

"If I find out he crossed the line ... if he was actually telling people that he worked for the NFLPA, I'm not gonna stand for that," Greengross told ESPN. "I've been clean for 15 years. If this guy did something I wasn't in control of, that's gonna come down on me and I'm gonna be responsible."
