The Philadelphia Eagles named Andrew Brandt as a consultant to assist in the areas of player contract negotiations and salary-cap management. Brandt will work closely with Eagles president Joe Banner in those matters through August.
Brandt left the Green Bay Packers in 2008 after nine years as vice president, where he handled all player contracts and managed the salary cap for the Packers. Prior to that, he spent several years as an agent, representing NFL players such as Matt Hasselbeck, Adam Vinatieri and Ricky Williams.
Brandt resides in Philadelphia and teaches Sports Law and Negotiations at the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton School of Business.
“Andrew has tremendous respect in both the NFL and the agent community,” said Banner. “As a longtime colleague with the Packers, we always admired his work in Green Bay handling player negotiations and managing the cap. We are delighted that he is in Philadelphia and we can now tap into his knowledge and expertise to help us in a consulting role through August.”
