Rosenhaus: NFL would fall apart without me


09:11 AM ET 10.08 | The NFL would "fall apart" if not for Drew Rosenhaus. At least, that's what the high-profile agent tells CBS' "60 Minutes" for a segment airing Sunday night. osenhaus admits it may sound arrogant, but says "I really believe that the NFL would fall apart without me." Rosenhaus gets 3 percent of the contracts he negotiates for his clients and says he earns it by keeping the NFL "running smoothly." He takes "a couple hundred" calls a day, giving his clients advice on anything, on the field or off it. One of his toughest tasks? Visiting clients in jail.

If his day day job falls apart he could always become a pimp....He would have to take his ego down a notch though....

I needed a good laugh after my Phillies lost last night. Thank you SI. The first line was funny on it's own. If he feels that way I'm surprised he didn't say he should be a 1st ballot HOF'er. The last line says is toughest task is visiting clients in jail and just before that he talks about giving his clients advice. You can't make this stuff up. Thanks for the laugh Drew.

Looks and talks a bit like Charlie Sheen. That can't be good.

The bloated salary structure would fall apart without Rosenhaus.

Look at what happened to the two teams with, by far, the most bloated payrolls in MLB...Four aces my ****. LOL.

The NFL would be just fine, someone else would be glad to step in and make the money he does but there is no denying he does negotiate some huge contracts. No one is bigger than the NFL.

I would love to find out.

Welp after this article there's no doubt that Rosenhaus is one of the biggest d//o//u//c//h//e//b//a//g//s in all of N. America and maybe even the planet.

Giving his clients advice? That could explain a few things...

Another reason to not watch 60 Minutes tomorrow night.
