Terrell Suggs denies getting paid by agent

Yesterday, the, ahem, mess hit the proverbial fan when Sports Illustrated published an upcoming feature in the magazine entitled "Confessions of an Agent" -- if you haven't read it, you should do so now.

If you're short on time, though, the gist is that a lot of specifically-named players got money from agents while in college.

One of those players is Terrell Suggs, but he denied receiving any money from his agent, Gary Wichard, according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post.

"I wish I had seen some of it, I swear," said Suggs. "I didn't get nothing. From what I heard was going on, people were getting cars and checks and stuff, I was like, 'Yo, my dumb ass is really under the rug.' Nah, I don't even know what's been said. I didn't get no cake. I wish I was getting some cake.

"Hey, it's hard in college, know what I mean. Gary Wichard didn't give me s***. He didn't give me anything. I wish I had known this was going on. Like I said, I never heard anything about it. I guess I'll have to read about it."

Suggs at least was willing to comment on the allegations -- many a player declined to say anything when asked by SI. He also said that his decision to sign with Wichard related to the agent already representing top pass-rushers like Jason Taylor and Dwight Freeney.

But because the whole "money under the table" issues is the definition of a "he-said/he-said" scenario, there's no real way to affirmatively say whether or not someone took money from an agent. The downside for someone like Suggs is that because of the culture surrounding elite college players and agent and all the problems stemming from said culture recently, the public mood is much more "guilty until proven innocent" than you might typically see.

Read the article Will,

Immediately, Gary told me that he recruited differently and that the Wild West way I learned under Doc wasn't going to fly. He said I needed to be "reprogrammed." There would be no more partying with players, no more paying players. That was music to my ears.

In 2003 I helped Gary get Arizona State defensive end Terrell Suggs, the No. 10 overall pick, USC running back Justin Fargas and others, but I started feeling as if Gary were trying to limit the number of clients I could claim. He turned me down when I asked him to meet with kids, and -- without me present -- he tried to meet with kids I had recruited. He also belittled me in front of people, saying I didn't have a college degree and wouldn't be anything without him.

What a dumb blog post.  You should follow your own advice and actually read the article.   Dont make it seem like it says that Suggs was getting paid.  The article clearly says that he stopped paying players and after that is when he recruited suggs.  It neither says nor suggests that he paid any money to Suggs. 

Hopefully you dont get paid to write this junk.

The article clearly states that Gary Wichard didn't pay his clients and clearly lists all the players that did get paid in list form at the end of the article and on a sidebar by the editor. You are sucking like you predecessors Prisco, Freeman, Doyel etc. Brinson. At least read the article you are commenting on.

lol did anyone actually read the article?  Gary Wichard didn't offer ANYONE money. he was completely against it.
Josh Luchs offered money to players in the 80s-90s, long before suggs had an agent. Gary Wichard told Josh Luchs he wasn't going to let him offer a dime to players if they were going to work together. They hooked up in 2000, three years before they met suggs.

T-Sizzle's excessive use of double negatives makes me believe he's playing with the media.  He took the money and knows it.

The article never says in English that Terrell Suggs was offered or recieved money or any other compensation. The author clearly names other players and amounts given to them but never states that about Suggs. This blog is way off track.
