The Tank Black Story

Authored by Mr. William H. Black
Edition: 2

Behind the Scenes with the NFL s Biggest Stars by the Game s Most Infamous Super Agent In the span of one year, William "Tank" Black went from setting the record for having the most first-round picks in the NFL draft represented by a single agent, to sitting behind bars on accusations of stealing from his clients, money laundering, securities fraud, and illegally paying money to college players to win their business. Now for the first time after nearly eight years in prison, Black sets the record straight and reveals the truth of his inspiring rise, and the behind-the-scenes dealings with some of the sport s biggest stars Vince Carter, Sterling Sharpe, Jevon Kearse, Fred Taylor, Rae Carruth, and Carl Banks, to name a few as well as the curious role the NFL Players Association had in his sudden, catastrophic fall from prominence.
