38 counts? Yikes.
While the players union did not cite any specifics re: the reason for the suspension and fine, the NFLPA did say the players on the agent regulations and discipline committee voted unanimously to pass these sanctions.
Dogra may not have the notoriety of one Drew Rosenhaus, but, Ben’s rolodex of current and former clients includes:
- Richard Sherman
- Adrian Peterson
- Mario Williams
- Robert Griffin III
- AJ Green
amongst other is nothing short of impressive.

What did Dogra do? Illegally rent that yacht from Ballers? We can only speculate. I don’t know anything about the ins-and-outs of the NFL agency world, but, I get the feeling like a three year ban is all but a death sentence when it comes to retaining + signing clients.
