NFLPA bans prominent agent Ben Dogra for three years
The NFLPA announced Wednesday that it has banned agent Ben Dogra from representing players for the next three years.
Dogra’s license has been revoked, and the NFLPA also fined him $200,000. He can apply for reinstatement after the three-year period.
The union said in a statement that the committee on agent regulations and discipline, composed of players, voted unanimously on Dogra’s discipline based on a 38-count disciplinary complaint, in addition to sworn testimony and evidence review.
Dogra can appeal the ruling before an independent arbitrator. In that event, his discipline would be delayed until the end of that process.
In May 2015, reports indicated that Dogra met with the NFLPA and was being investigated for a variety of potential violations.
