These have been busy – and heady – days lately for Beachwood-based football agent Neil Cornrich and his firm, NC Sports. In the last two weeks alone, Cornrich has:
- Flown to Boston to attend both a New England Patriots practice and a birthday celebration for his client, Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel (who starred at Ohio State and Walsh Jesuit High).
- Attended practices and given full-squad presentations at Oklahoma, Arizona, South Florida and Virginia (coaches Bob Stoops, Mike Stoops, Jim Leavitt and Al Groh, respectively, are Cornrich clients).
- Seen his firm succesfully negotiate one of the top contracts for a 2006 first-round pick: an estimated $29 million deal for Buffalo Bills defensive back Donte Whitner (a former OSU and Glenville High star).
