Drew Rosenhaus on twitter

    Curious to see what the board thinks of agent Drew Rosenhaus sending out updates on this clients through his page at Twitter.com. (twitter.com/rosenhaussports) ... He's started tweeting several times a day with updates -- Thomas Jones will report to OTAs, Anquan Boldin seeking less than $10m a year, lots of things like that.

    Basically, it's another way for him to disseminate information on his clients without even having to take calls from writers. It's much like an athlete breaking news on their own personal website. I've seen a lot of blogs, especially PFT, picking up his tweets for short news items. Peter King's MMQB referenced it today, and I imagine you'll see other agent types using the same platform to get their clients' names out there.

    Our place utilized it during the scramble to report free-agent signings immediately after the NFL draft last month.

    Landed a few that way from other agents. Twitter, as much as it pains me to say it, can definitely be beneficial at times.

    It's a great resource. For all the haters, it's now the No. 15 site in Alexa's U.S. traffic rankings for all sites. One spot ahead of CNN.com ...

    And it still isn't making money.
