Our goal is to maximize our clients annual income and net worth as well as build their portfolio to insure financial security long after the conclusion of their career as a professional athlete. Our roster of clients is intentionally small so that real time and attention can be spent focused on the unique needs and goals of each player. ​We are competitors at heart, so we play to win. We will never be outworked or leave anything on the field.

Black Label Sports Group is honest, loyal, and reliable. We tell it like it is and can be counted on. In addition to everything from draft preparation to contract negotiation, we provide our clients with second to none benefits and recourses. We align our athletes with partners to create a wide range of revenue and marketing opportunities. This includes endorsements, appearances, non-profits or charity, digital/social branding and sales.

As a group, we collectively have corporate, creative and sports backgrounds to be able to relate to and produce elite – exceptional services on a consistent basis.


Preparing for the NFL Combine

At BLS our goal for each of our players is to lead the way for their position at the NFL Combine. We develop customized pre-draft training programs for each of our clients. As part of each player’s plan:

  • We ensure you are trained by the best trainers in the country to prepare you both physically and mentally for the rigors of the workouts
  • We review and run down all the position drills so you will go in with the confidence to ace every part of your “track and field” audition in front of NFL personnel.
  • We prepare you for what questions to expect in team interviews and how to respond appropriately.

Contract Negotiations

At BLS we have a proven track record of success, including negotiating one of the largest contracts for a franchise in the history of the NFL.

No matter what your position, at BLS we know the value our clients bring to their teams and how to get great results at the negotiating table.

Our goal at BLS is to structure a deal that maximizes the guaranteed dollars and bonuses of our players’ contracts. To do this we:

  • Conduct extensive research on prior year contracts, the current rookie cap and the overall salary ceiling for each team
  • Use our deep knowledge of NFL collective bargaining agreement and our access to statistical data to negotiate the best possible contract on your behalf
  • Leverage our strong, long standing relationships and contacts across the league
  • Partner with an elite team of certified public accountants and certified contract negotiators to structure contracts to minimize tax burdens

Wealth Management

Negotiating the best possible contract is just the start.

After many years working with clients from the moment they enter NFL until they retire at BLS we know athletes have unique and often complex financial issues. Finding the right financial advisor from the start is one of the most important decisions you can make.

When you join BLS you will have access to some of the best financial advisors in the business who have years of experience working with NFL players. Our team understands that most football salaries – unlike other professional sports – are not fully guaranteed. They will guide you to make smart investments that prepare you and your family for life both during and after sports.

These services include:

  • Annual Tax Preparation – The cost for this service is included in our fees for contract negotiation
  • Estate Planning
  • Retirement Planning
  • Investment Planning
  • Real estate acquisition and financing
  • Individual estate and gift tax planning
  • Bank account reconciliation and management

Above all else, we believe it is essential for our players to retain full control of your finances. Your financial team should never operate without your input. For your protection, we have a careful system of checks and balances to ensure your financial team is working in your best interests.

Marketing and Endorsements

At BLS we know every one of our players is unique and requires a personalized marketing strategy. We aggressively pursue marketing opportunities for every client in order to maximize their off-the-field revenue. Our services include:

  • Securing long term and short term endorsement deals
  • Developing social media strategies to broaden networks and increase engagement
  • Partnering with Public Relations Firms to develop and pitch stories for use on traditional, digital and social media platforms
  • Philanthropic initiatives

  • Foundation development
  • Event planning

Fundraising opportunities, including golf tournaments, football camps or other client requests.
