Poston memorably said he didn't read the final copy of LaVar Arrington's old contract, in which he claimed the Redskins omitted a $6.5 million roster bonus. Other famous Poston Brothers clients include Ty Law, Charles Woodson, Kellen Winslow, and Julian Peterson.


Did a search and didn't find this as a topic.

Interesting to see how this affects a few of these FA's. I'm hoping it makes Peterson easier to sign back to the team.

I mentioned awhile ago that there was a good chance this would happen and people scoffed at me. Of course, he will probably just continue through his brother. I see a great cartoon coming out of this.

I personally didn't know that agents could be suspended. Sorry I missed your post :)

What do you guys think this means to the likes of Law, Peterson, etc?

I hate the Postons with a burning passion. I prefer drawing and quartering to a suspension though.

I completely agree with that sentiment. Those two are a menace to work with and shouldn't be allowed to function at the NFL level. Nice to see at least one of them got their due.

I'm missed something here. What did he do? I agree he's an idiot, but I doubt that's the reason he's been suspended. If that were the case, then the NFL would find themselves very short on agents :-) .

Nevermind, I found it:

NFLPA SUSPENDS CARL POSTON

Liz Mullen of SportsBusiness Journal reports that the NFLPA Committee on Agent Regulation and Discipline has voted to suspend agent Carl Poston for two years.

The suspension arises from Poston's negotiation of LaVar Arrington's December 2003 contract extension with the Redskins. After the deal was done, Poston claimed that the Redskins had failed to include in the final version of the contract a $6.5 million roster bonus payable in 2006, which would have resulted in two 2006 $6.5 million roster bonuses in the contract. In support of the allegation that the 'Skins had hoodwinked Arrington and his agent, Poston admitted that the didn't read the contract before it was signed. The grievance filed on Arrington's behalf later was resolved in a manner that resulted in no payment or promise of payment to Arrington.

Poston can appeal the suspension to an arbitrator.

The irony is that Arrington was cut before either bonus would have come due. And the far bigger disservice, in our opinion, to Arrington was the failure of Poston to determine the market value of Arrington before allowing him to waive $4.4 million in deferred signing bonus money in order to secure his freedom, and in permitting him to turn down the opportunity to convert the $6.5 million roster bonus into a guaranteed payment. In more than a week since Arrington bought his release from the 'Skins by giving up the deferred bonus money, Arrington has made two visits and has received no offers.
