Brady has praised Yee as “a great advisor for me. He’s always been focused on football. When I got out of college and was looking for someone to represent me, there were a lot of options. He was someone that really had the same goal where I could find the right spot and my career could flourish … Whatever your personal goals were, he would support that. [Yee wasn’t interested] necessarily in the goals of what an agent may be, but what your goals may be. My goal has always been winning and he’s tried to support that in the best way he could and that’s why I have so much respect for him.” During the Deflategate controversy, the Boston Globe described Yee as Brady’s “chief surrogate” and “uber-agent”, while the Washington Post called him Brady’s “super agent”.
Yee has been described as a “megaphone for players’ rights” and has publicly taken controversial opinions in the sports world. In 2002, he advocated eliminating the NFL draft, saying that all it does is “help unproven players establish a market value when they’ve contributed nothing to the league and their production is speculative at best”. He argued in a 2010 op-ed in the Washington Post that college football players should be paid, arguing that it would “implement an honest approach to the combination of big-time football and higher education, an approach that eliminates the NCAA’s notion of amateurism”. In 2017, Yee co-founded the Pacific Pro Football league, an alternative to college football, with funding from angel investors.
Yee decided to become a sports agent in 1988, which the Sacramento Bee described as a long shot, similar to someone “marching into Hollywood hopeful his manuscript would be snatched up”. His big break came in 1999, when he signed, then a senior at University of Michigan and now Yee’s best-known client as a quarterback for the New England Patriots. Yee has represented Brady for his entire career.
Yee grew up in Sacramento, California, into an immigrant Chinese-American family. His mother is not able to speak English. As a 13-year-old in 1974, he worked as a batboy for the Sacramento Solons, the city’s then minor league baseball team. In an interview with Sactown Magazine, he recalls the influence of the baseball team’s manager,, who taught Yee that he shouldn’t “pay attention to what others think. Just do your best, and do what you think is right”. He graduated from Sacramento High School in 1978. Yee went to college at UCLA, during which he interned at Sacramento’s KFBK radio station as a producer for a nightly sports talk show. He obtained a Los Angeles Lakers season credential and covered parts of Magic Johnson’s rookie season of 1979-80. Yee graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1987.
