She also wants to know that she can work with a player.

The firm turns down more players than it agrees to represent. The key is getting the player on a team’s 53-man roster because that’s the only way an agent will get paid, she said. And an agent can only make up to 3 percent of a player’s contract.

When Henry agrees to represent a player, it becomes a blitz to get him on a team. She said the firm sends marketing material to all 32 teams and can arrange for a player to have a workout with a scout.

“It gives them the best opportunity to be viewed after their college play and to have an opportunity to take the next step toward the draft and playing in the league,” Henry said. “We’ve gotten players into camp, and sometimes they’ve gotten a contract tendered, and sometimes they don’t.”
