As Denver Broncos fans have painfully learned this offseason, a player's best wishes are sometimes negated by an agent's error.
Even though Elvis Dumervil wanted to re-sign with Denver, his agent missed the deadline to fax the team his contract. The Broncos released Dumervil, and he subsequently signed with the Baltimore Ravens.
Recently, another veteran defender had some agent issues. Terence Newman, an unrestricted free agent who spent the last year with the Cincinnati Bengals, is looking to finalize a deal (perhaps stay with the Bengals).
But Newman's got one problem -- he can't find his agent. So Newman, who is represented by Ben Dogra of the Creative Artists Agency, sent out a tweet asking for help.
If anyone sees Ben Dogra of CAA, tell him I'd like him to get my deal finalized so if he could call me it would be appreciated.

This situation is a little strange because Dogra is a very high profile man. He represents lots of NFL players, including Adrian Peterson, Robert Griffin III and Mario Williams. It seems bizarre that Newman would have such a hard time getting in touch with him.
Newman is clearly comfortable on Twitter, so maybe he should try tweeting at CAA Football.
