The downfall of Dogra began when he was fired from Creative Artists Agency in November of 2014. Ben would take some of his clients with him as he became co-CEO of Relativity Sports two months later. Just over a year ago, Dogra's decline hit rock bottom as he received a 3 year suspension from the NFLPA.
Well, as I'm sure you've figured out by now, Dogra is on the upswing as he was reinstated by the NFLPA this February. So, while the Patriots may have no actual intentions of ever seeing Peterson in a New England uniform, playing nice with with a powerful agent may be worth the heat they were taking.
