Whether on the field or off it, whether you’re a rookie or a vet, you will be a success. We believe each client is unique and there is no cookie-cutter approach.

Pre-Draft Training

A professional athlete’s career begins long before he is drafted and during this period there are many important decisions to be made. The EDGE will guide you every step of the way.

Marketing & NIL

Our marketing team comes from the epicenter of corporate America, New York City. Our relationships run deep with Fortune 1000 companies, NFL & Team Sponsors, as well as executives for the league.

Contract Management

Our EDGE is our aggressive preparation + execution. We handle contract negotiation prep the same way a team puts together a complex game plan. Preparation is the key to success, which is why we’ve allocated a plethora of resources so we are prepared for any and all situations. Having a strong network gives you information that can be the most valuable commodity in negotiation.

Post Career Planning

We believe it’s the agent’s job to talk about the realities of the business and the average career span of a professional athlete. We understand that football will end at some point, and we don’t wait until that point to create a plan. During your career, we are constantly discussing your goals and vision. This forward-thinking will give you an EDGE in life after football. Unlike other agencies, we don’t stop working for you when football ends.
