According to an extensive report from Yahoo Sports, NFL super-agent Drew Rosenhaus is currently under investigation by the NFL Players Association.

The investigation stems from Rosenhaus' close relationship to Jeff Rubin, who encouraged dozens of NFL players, many of whom were Rosenhaus clients, to invest in an Alabama bingo casino. The casino was later raided and shut down. NFL players reportedly lost as much as $43 million.

While there is no evidence that Rosenhaus benefited in any way from the failed casino operation, he may have breached fiduciary obligations by referring his clients to Rubin's business. He said, "I had no reason to believe that Jeff Rubin was doing anything illegal or irresponsible or unethical."

Yahoo! estimates that Rosenhaus represents roughly 140 clients, more than any other agent in the NFL. As many as 26 Rosenhaus clients invested in the failed enterprise, including former Jacksonville star Fred Taylor and current Jaguar Greg Jones.
