Patriots LB switches agents after re-signing in New England | Sporting News

Must read

New England Patriots linebacker Joshua Uche was expected to leave in free agency to get more money than the team that drafted him in the second round was willing to offer.

However, Uche surprisingly re-signed with New England on a one-year, $3 million (up to $8 million in incentives) contract this offseason despite reports that he turned down a two-year, $15 million offer elsewhere.

Now, as ESPN’s Mike Reiss pointed out, Uche has switched his representation to Drew Rosenhaus, who is one of the most prominent agents working with the players today.

It’s unclear exactly what led to the change, but with Uche seeing a number of his teammates get large extensions this offseason (Kyle Dugger, Michael Onwenu, Rhamondre Stevenson, Christian Barmore, Jahlani Tavai), it wouldn’t be surprising if Uche feels that he’s worth more than he got.

Rosenhaus also represents Patriots defensive lineman Davon Godchaux, who is looking for a new deal before the start of the season.
