When your nickname is ‘Tommy Cutlets’ it only makes sense that your agent would resemble a character straight out of “The Sopranos.”
Giants QB Tommy DeVito, known for playing up his Italian-American heritage, was captured by ESPN cameras on the field before his highly anticipated “Monday Night Football” game against the Packers. By his side stood his agent, Sean Stellato.
Stellato, a long-time agent and fellow proud Italian-American, made quite the fashion statement. Dressed in a black pinstripe suit, complete with a black hat and a gold bracelet on his wrist, he certainly didn’t go unnoticed.
Unsurprisingly, this clip quickly went viral as football fans devoured the image across platforms like X and Instagram.
As if the fashion statement wasn’t enough, the agent sealed his newfound fame when, after the Giants scored a third-quarter touchdown, he planted an affectionate kiss on Tommy DeVito’s father, Tom. ESPN’s Joe Buck couldn’t help but declare that this moment had the potential to “break the internet.”
Adding to his prestige, Stellato will be inducted into the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame in Chicago later this week.
DeVito, grateful for his agent’s unwavering support, spoke highly of Stellato: “Sean is always by my side, both on and off the field, doing whatever it takes to help me with my career.” DeVito even deemed him the “Italian Stallion of sports agents.”
DeVito’s impact on the New York sports scene has been nothing short of remarkable. Leading the Giants to back-to-back wins, he has quickly earned a place in fans’ hearts. Going into Monday night’s showdown with the Packers, DeVito boasted impressive stats: 697 passing yards and seven touchdown passes in just five appearances this season.
