An agent who set up a memorabilia agreement for LaDainian Tomlinson is charged with taking kickbacks from the deal. He’s also the man who represents the NFL draft’s projected #1 running back.
A marketing agent representing former Oklahoma Sooner running back Adrian Peterson is facing felony charges of commercial bribery and theft.
Bill Henkel, managing director of 10 Sports Marketing, turned himself in to the Johnson County, Kan., sheriff’s office on Friday, deputy Tom Erickson said. Henkel posted $10,000 bond and was released the same day.
The charges are related to a sports memorabilia deal that Henkel, the former football marketing director of International Management Group’s football division, negotiated involving San Diego Chargers star LaDainian Tomlinson, the Johnson County prosecutor’s office said.
Henkel’s attorney says the players will stand by their man.
