Antonio Brown mimicks LeBron James, returns to original representation

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

The Steelers' All Pro receiver changes his representation for the second time in three months, dumping Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports to return to Rosenhaus Sports.

Well, that was fast.

Antonio Brown made a ripple or two when he announced he was singing with Roc Nation, the agency owned by hip-hop mogul Jay-Z back in May.

According to Fox Sports and other outlets, Brown is leaving Roc Nation for Rosenhaus Sports, returning to his original agency.

Rosenhaus Sports negotiated Brown's $42.5 million contract in 2012, and no reason was given for him leaving either agency. Perhaps a general lack of marketing opportunities may have been an issue. That's only suggested by the fact, Brown, a young, charismatic player at a prime position coming off a monster year, is rarely seen nationally. While he doesn't have a cheap contract by any means, he's nowhere close to the highest paid player at his position. Picking up a marketing deal or two would certainly help.

Or maybe he just didn't like the fact he left one agency to return to the first one that represented him. That sort of thing seems to be happening a lot in sports. Something about basketball and Cleveland and Miami, I don't know.
