Is anyone really surprised by this?

While Dez didn’t originally sign with Rosenhaus, after he fired his original agent Eugene, he came on board. Dez fired Rosenhaus a couple of weeks ago and is now back with Parker.

According to his adviser Dez is just an innocent victim.

, a longtime advisor to Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, has accused high-profile agent Drew Rosenhaus of offering him a prohibited cash payment and trip to Miami in an effort to sign Bryant, Yahoo! Sports has learned.

The progression of alleged messages from Rosenhaus – from a number that matches one on file for Rosenhaus – to Wells reads:

• Dec. 16, 2009, Rosenhaus wrote in a text to Wells: “Also will have 10K for you to give to your community center..”

• Dec. 17, 2009, Rosenhaus wrote in another text: “Dnt [sic] mean to put pressure but we want this bad ! Were ready to put u on a private jet and get this done.. Miami’s callllinnnnnggggg!!!”

• Dec. 21, 2009, after Wells said he did not respond to Rosenhaus’ text messages, the agent wrote by text: “Never heard back my man.. We raised the guarantee … You’ll be happy..”

• Jan. 3, 2010, Rosenhaus wrote in a text: “Whatever it takes man … whatever … Just give us a shot.”

Wells, a successful former bails bondsman and private investigator, said he came forward regarding the text messages because he is tired of a system that, in his view, “takes advantage of athletes, particularly African-American athletes.”

Additionally, Wells claims that Rosenhaus started advancing Bryant large sums of money shortly after signing Bryant as a client, a move Wells said Rosenhaus never called him to ask if that was advisable. Wells claims that Rosenhaus told him that Bryant owes more than $100,000 to Rosenhaus’ company.

Wells is also taking advantage of African-American athletes, but he failed to mentioned that. Wells is proving not to be a great adviser considering this isn’t the type of story you want out in the public right before the season starts.

Just a fail all the way around.
