08:21 AM ET 08.04 | Wide receiver Dez Bryant has decided to switch agents (again), leaving Drew Rosenhaus and going back to Eugene Parker. This comes only three days after Bryant met with owner Jerry Jones for the first time following his mid-July arrest for family violence. Parker negotiated Bryant's rookie contract. Owner Jerry Jones was asked if he thought that was a good decision on Bryant's part. "I do," Jones said. "It's nothing against Rosenhaus, but I know the quality person Eugene Parker is and I think Dez benefits from that."

Wow, Jerry Jones says something intelligent. That's even a bigger story than Bryant making a smart decision.

JJ knows that he was able to negotiate a very cowboy friendly contract with Parker/Bryant the first time around. Five year/11.8 million. Rosenhaus is a lot tougher to deal with. And that is why JJ is happy about this, but note JJ, Dez changed agents before and come ante up time he very well may again.

All the Owners hate this guy and all the players should love him!!!

Drew Rosenhaus has killed as many careers as he's made. Dude has the ethics of a jackal and the class of a prostitute. Guess that's why he's a sports agent. A real life Max Green.

Agree totally, Most owners don't want to deal with Rosendouche.

Unless an agent follows a player around day to day and especially night tonight, then they have no more control over their behavior than you or I do.
I am sure no agent ever told a player" mess up your personal life so I can get you more money."

Drop your agent but do not drop the ball.

JJ's intelligent talk won't last long. America's Team will never win another SB with JJ as the GM.

Outside of Jerry Jones blatantly stating it, this should fall under the no $hit category.

There is no owner in the NFL that wants their players to work with Drew Rosenhaus.

I endorse this too.

Of course Jerry Jones wants a star player with a weak agent so that the Cowboys won't have to pay him that much.

I never thought of Eugene Parker as "weak"... Definitely a fair guy. He did alright for Emmitt and the fraud Deion.

Something to look forward to Sunday, a game. Then again it's the Cards.
