The NFL roster deadline has come and gone, and 2 SMWW clients have made the rosters! 

KaVontae Turpin, Pro-Bowl Wide Reciever and Return Specialist, made the roster of the Dallas Cowboys. After a successful rookie season, Turpin is looking to expand his role on the Cowboys specifically as a wide receiver. Dallas Cowboys' Special Teams Coordinator, John Fassel, said "He’s special, I envision him being even more special this year than he was last year.” Turpin has been seen in practice and in games contributing more to the passing game, along with taking reps at running back. The Cowboys will look to use him in a myriad of positions, utilizing his speed, size, and elusiveness to tear up defenses this year.

Blake Brandel, Offensive Tackle, made the roster of the Minnesota Vikings! Blake returns to the Vikings after being drafted by them in the 6th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Blake is a key player in the Vikings' Special Teams unit and in the jumbo run packages. Blake played much of the pre-season and moved around the offensive line. He can be seen getting reps at both Tackle and Guard. 

Congrats to Blake and KaVontae for making their roster spots! Also, congrats to the SMWW Agent Advisors who represent them. KaVontae is represented by Brian Lowe and Perry Boler. Blake is represented by NFLPA Certified Agent, Jeff Brodie!
