He’s not a player, he’s not an owner, but he is one of the most visible and powerful people in the NFL. For the most part, agent Drew Rosenhaus has kept relatively quiet while the two sides work to hash out a new CBA. But on Wednesday night, in a series of Tweets, Rosenhaus called out the owners to “stop posturing” and “cut the b.s.” while warning that if they wind up in litigation they will “be crushed in court.”

Here are the Tweets he posted at in chronological order:

“Less than 48 hours left to get a deal done! Come on owners - stop the posturing & get serious about doing a deal! Time to get real!”

“The owners made a killing last year with restricted free agency and the lack of extensions/big deals. Time to stop this nonsense & be fair!”

“Sounds like the NFLPA is making serious concessions on the rookie pay scale how much more do the owners want before they get reasonable!”

“If the owners turn their back on the players they will regret it and will be crushed in court just like the tv $ case!”

“Without the tv $ there is no way the NFL can afford to lockout the players into the season so the owners should cut the b.s. & do a deal now”

Not exactly @CharlieSheen type rants, but it is interesting to see an NFL heavyweight finally weigh in.
