High-profile NFL agent Ben Dogra fired by his agency
Friday November 14th, 2014

Prominent agent Ben Dogra has been fired by his agency, according to mulitple reports. ESPN was first to report the news, saying that Dogra was fired for cause.

Dogra worked for Creative Artists Agency (CAA), one of the largest sports agencies in the country. He represents Adrian Peterson, J.J. Watt, Richard Sherman, Robert Griffin III, A.J. Green, Mario Williams, Patrick Willis, Jeremy Maclin and many others, according to The Washington Post.

Dogra's clients could choose to stay with him, remain with his former agency or seek new representation. According to ESPN, Dogra's clients would have to file paperwork with the players' union indicating they wish to change agents and wait five days before making the switch. 

Earlier this month, Forbes listed Dogra as one of the "world's most powerful agents."
