Drew Rosenhaus, pure evil, strikes again
Today's athlete screwed by Drew - Jack Ikegwuonu, who blew out his knee and ended his 2008 season trying to get ready for the NFL draft after being talked into coming out a year early by Rosenhaus. JSOnline's DayWatch did not say which knee (not that it's important), but he tore both the ACL and MCL on that knee and damaged a kneecap while pulling a sled designed to improve his speed.
Because Ikegwuonu both signed with Rosenhaus and missed the January 19 deadline to pull back out of the NFL draft, he also won't be able to come back to Wisconsin. I hope Rosenhaus signed a percentage-only contract.
Revisons/extensions (5:07 pm 1/24/2008) - By popular request, the quote of the day from an unnamed NFL exec asked about this situation - "He's screwed now. He wasn't going to be that high of a pick, anyway. Fourth round. I blame the agent for talking the kid into coming out. Stupid. Because he wasn't a first-day player"
