Former UH wideout Rodney Bradley today signed a contract with agent Mark Magazu, president of Atlas Strategies in New York. Atlas’ headquarter is in the Empire State Building.
Atlas emphasizes representing athletes who will use their public status to promote charitable causes. For instance, an Atlas client, receiver Terrence Austin of the Washington Redskins, is co-chair of the National Youth Leadership Committee of the Ronald Reagan Centennial Celebration. That group includes singers Nick Jonas and Jordin Sparks.
Magazu said Bradley had fallen “off the radar” following a season-ending leg injury in 2009. Bradley regained his left wideout’s job, starting 12 regular-season games in 2010. “Our job is to get him back on the radar,” Magazu said.
Bradley will train in Long Beach, Calif. with Philadelphia receiver DeSean Jackson’s speed and receiver coach.
“We don’t make promises, of course,” Magazu said. “If we do our job well, and he works hard, I think you’ll see him in an NFL camp.”
