Drew Rosenhaus to NFL: Anyone Want a Troubled Wide Receiver from South Florida (or Three)?

Pop quiz sports fans: What do Bengals' receiver Chad Ocho Cinco (formerly Chad Johnson), Cardinals' receiver Anquan Boldin, and Giants' receiver Plaxico Burress have in common?

They all have histories of insubordination (and one shot himself in the leg in a nightclub). They all have homes in South Florida. They're all represented by super-agent Drew Rosenhaus (also from South Florida).

And now they're all available to your favorite football teams, according to an email from Rosenhaus to all 32 NFL teams. And some of those teams are understandably pissed. Apparently Rosenhaus (the inspiration for the movie Jerry Maguire) didn't have permission to shop any of the troubled wideouts.

You know who's not bothered by this news? Chad Pennington. Simple geography suggests that at least one of these guys will end up on the Dolphins. A Boldin, Burress, or Ocho Cinco would certainly make Miami's offense formidable. Plus, imagine how popular those teal Ocho Cinco jerseys would be.
