Reports: Agent used porn star to sign clients

A twit pic of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and porn star Bibi Jones got the football player some unwanted attention, but it could have more serious repercussions for baseball agent Terry Bross.

After the pictures of Gronkowski and Jones showed up on Twitter, Jones appeared on a Boston radio show and said an agent in Phoenix would "kind of use me to get baseball players to sign him as an agent." A report by Maury Brown of the Business of Sports Network, cited several sources as saying that agent was Bross of Gaylor Sports Management. Business Insider has also reported the news, and Bross refused comment when reached by the publication.

On 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston with Toucher and Rich, Jones said she had sex with "lots (of professional athletes), but most of them aren't married."

When asked about players that weren't married, she named Braves second baseman Dan Uggla. "There's a lot, but I can't say."

Uggla, it should be noted, is represented by Bross. The Braves second baseman left Jeff Borris of the Beverely Hills Sports Council to join Bross in 2010, before he was traded to the Braves and signed a five-year, $62 million extension.

Jones also spoke with Business Insider earlier this week and was asked about helping the then-unnamed agent recruit players.

"I haven't done that in a year. But he would just take me to a bar and introduce me after a Diamondbacks game in Arizona," she told Business Insider. "You know, baseball players would come and I'd introducee myself. And then I got to hook up with baseball players and have fun. It was like a dream come true because I love athletes and baseball's my favorite sport."

Jones said she slept with "over 10" baseball players that Bross introduced her to, all in 2010. She said she believed "a couple" of those players ended up signing with Bross.

She said she hasn't spoken to him for more than a year, but "he was a very nice guy."

Uggla's Marlins played in Arizona from July 8-11, 2010 and Uggla signed with Bross on July 28, 2010.

I am shocked. Shocked I tell you to hear that someone in the profession of representing professional athletes would use tactics like this. Ia m even more shocked to learn that such atactic might actually influence an athlete.

Boy what can you believe in thes e days.

I've always felt the same about women's beach volleyball. To WBV agents, I'd like to do my part in recruiting please. ;)

Many colleges have been found to use women to entice recruits. At least in this case, keeping with the player's professional status, it looks like they were using professional women as well... :up

No way this could be true........

Read it twice...still shaking my in disbelief but no one has come out to deny the story.

You would think a player would have threaten a law suit by now...but neither of the 2 names mentioned in this article have stepped up.
