Despite missing much of his first two professional seasons due to multiple knee injuries, Derrius Guice is already one of the most popular players on the Redskins.

His personality helped raise his profile, which has led to a number of endorsement deals beyond his NFL rookie contract.

Now, Guice’s former agent has filed a lawsuit over not being paid in return for these deals.

The running back’s initial agent after leaving LSU was Fadde Mikhail, but Guice left his agency weeks before being drafted. He then signed with Young Money, and according to Mikhail in the lawsuit, was required to pay back the money he had been lent during the pre-draft process.

Per the lawsuit, Guice and Young Money have allegedly not repaid Mikhail, and the latter is now asking for $500,000. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in a California court.

Guice has endorsement deals with Nike and Hyundai, in addition to other opportunities to earn money from his likeness and autographs. This supplemental income is what Mikhail’s suit is regarding, in addition to alleged pre-draft loans of $191,000.
