Your headhunter analogy is completely wrong. You don't pay the headhunter (unless you're desperate and you have no marketable skills). The company that hires you and pays your salary pays the headhunter. Your relationship with the headhunter terminates as soon as you accept the job offer.
The player's relationship with the agent is ongoing. It's totally different.
That's complete bullshit. It's the agents job to tell the player what is in the contract. After that it is the player's responsibility to follow the contract. Working out, taking care of their bodies, and playing football is an NFL player's job. If he doesn't care enough to remember a clause in his contract that will pay him 2 FREAKING MILLION DOLLARS, then the fault is his own.
