On Tuesday, Sports Business Journal reported that the agencies CAA Sports and Roc Nation Sports would end their planned partnership after two years.
In a joint statement, the agencies said, “Roc Nation Sports and CAA Sports have recently concluded their two-year partnership. Roc Nation Sports and CAA Sports are two of the premier agencies and they will continue their high levels of client service to the world’s top athletes. They have enjoyed their time as partners and have achieved many successes together. Going forward, they will each focus their efforts on their own business opportunities and clientele.”
This is relevant to the Dallas Cowboys because receiver and free agent-to-be Dez Bryant is represented by Kimberly Miale of Roc Nation--he signed with the company, founded by Jay Z, last November--and Tom Condon of CAA. But despite the split, Bryant’s representation will remain unchanged, Miale told the Dallas Morning News this week.
The news comes as the Cowboys prepare to enter negotiations with Bryant on a new deal. The Oklahoma State product is coming off three consecutive seasons of 85-plus catches, 1,000-plus receiving yards and 10-plus touchdowns and both sides have expressed a desire to come to a long-term agreement. That said, the team using the franchise tag on Bryant is a distinct possibility.
