PlayersRep Sports Management was founded in 1997 by current agents Andy Simms and Wesley Spencer. Today we have become one of the foremost leaders in the field of athlete representation. PlayersRep combines a unique blend of past experience and success with personal service and attention that is normally found in only the smallest boutique firms.
The approach to representing NFL players is different at PlayersRep. We base our entire business on the concept that quality is more important than quantity. PlayersRep LIMITS the number of new clients we take on each year, which allows us to focus entirely on the players we represent.
Our team includes six licensed agents with over 60 years of combined experience as NFLPA Certified Advisors. We have negotiated over 400 NFL Contracts, ensuring that each of our clients receives the highest level of professional expertise. Additionally, since we limit our new clients each year, we are able to make sure someone is always available to provide a high level of service to each and every PlayersRep athlete and their family.
PlayersRep aims to create an atmosphere where each client feels like he is the only client. Hundreds of firms exist in this industry, but no one offers what PlayersRep is able to. We are dedicated to maximizing our players potential and opportunities both on and off the playing field. We do this through our daily commitment to service and hard work, coupled with our open and honest partnerships with our players.
