If all that looks familiar, well it should. When Tom Cruise played super agent Jerry Maguire, Maguire's persona was based largely on Rosenhaus.
[Jerry Maguire: He said I don't know what it's like to be a black person! I'm Mr. Black People.
Jerry Maguire: Show me the money!!!!!!
Cuba Gooding Jr.: Congratulations you're still my agent.]
Pelley: Do you have to keep these guys out of trouble?
Rosenhaus: Sometimes, yeah.
Pelley: You put clients in rehab?
Rosenhaus: I have.
Pelley: Bailed clients out of jail?
Rosenhaus: Of course. I've gone in the middle of the night to do that. I've visited clients in prison. I mean, that's brutal. There's nothing, nothing tougher than that.
His most famous prison client is star receiver Plaxico Burress. Burress served more than twenty months for shooting himself - in a nightclub - with an unlicensed handgun. When Burress was released in June, Rosenhaus was there with his typically understated welcome.
Pelley: Good thing he's not a 300-pound lineman. He hit you pretty hard.
Plaxico Burress: I'd have been running the other way.
Pelley: You're in prison.
Pelley: You shot yourself in the leg.
Pelley: What kind of things was Rosenhaus telling you?
Burress: Stay strong. You know, stay strong. He was like, you know, 'Our day to shine is comin' again.' And he's gonna keep you upbeat. He's that kinda person, that kind of personality.
Pelley:: What did it mean to you that Rosenhaus was reachin' out to you and tellin' you that you were gonna be okay?
Burress: To be honest--I didn't expect anything less, you know. Because you know, I know him as a person and you know where his heart is.
Burress had missed two seasons. But Rosenhaus talked the New York Jets into a one year, three-million dollar contract.
Burress: Drew's a salesman, I mean, that's what he does.
Pelley: When he called you and said, 'I've got a deal with the Jets.' You thought what?
Burress: Championship. Championship.
