I have had the opportunity to know Angelo Wright for well over 25 years. Angelo has always impressed me with his superior knowledge of the football business. What I find even more outstanding is his work ethic, passion and absolute honestly which serves his clients best interest at all times. I highly recommend that any prospective client give Angelo the highest consideration in the Agent selection process. One thing you can count on is he will be your greatest advocate in the best times and in the most challenging times. That's all one can ask for.

Bill Duffy / NBA Agent from BDA Sports,
Arthur McAfee - Partner at The McAfee Group/NFLPA Staff Counsel ,
Angelo is excellent at preparing his clients for the NFL, negotiating market value NFL Player Contracts,and managing the business and personal affairs of his clients. Having spent 20+years serving as legal counsel at the NFLPA, I have seen Agents perform both good and bad on behalf of their clients. Angelo has always fought "tooth and nail" to support, protect, and win for his clients
Ted Washington - DT New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXVIII. Winner,
I played in the National Football League 17 seasons. He got me my money, was there with me in the good and the bad.. and is still there as I evolve from retired pro athlete to business owner.
Pat Williams - DT Minnesota Vikings,
I was an undrafted player out of Texas A&M. Angelo helped me attain my goals to become a PRO Bowl NFL player. At 35 years old I became the highest paid nose tackle in the NFL. I can't say enough about how proud I am to have not only been represented by him as a player .. but to have him as friend and mentor in life...
Amon Gordon - 8yr NFL Veteran Defensive Lineman,
It is with great pleasure that I attest to Angelo Wright's body of work. I have known Angelo since 2003 and have been represented by him since 2006. During the course of my 8 year career as a free agent the sound advice received from Angelo, his vast professional contacts within the business and innovative approaches to helping his clients gain opportunities, was without question instrumental in chances to play each year. Angelo is a tireless, and conscientious worker whom is more than willing to go the extra mile for his clients. Over the years, I have without hesitation referred a number of players to him for that these reasons. Angelo is a man of integrity. He is also a great listener/negotiator (both skills that are highly important for agents to possess within this industry) truthful, and always available to help his clients however possible. All this being said, I would highly recommend Angelo Wright to any player seeking honest, and outstanding representation to advance their careers.
