NFLPA details discipline for agents who violate rules
The National Football League Players Association is aiming to crack down on rule-breaking agents, sending out a memo on Monday morning detailing the harsh punishment for those who get caught violating regulations.
In April, an arbitrator ruled that Jackson owed Rosenhaus over $500,000 because of a previously unpaid loan. Jackson claims the loan, which was stuffed inside a Louis Vuitton bag, was a bribe to join Rosenhaus' agency.
Punishment and fines will be doubled, according to the memo, and a initial six-month suspension for agents who are in violation will be increased to a year.
The union wants agent to file "other agreements" they have with their clients, which can include "relevant documents relating to loans, lines of credit, or pre-combine or pre-draft services or benefits being provided to rookie clients."
