Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise), a brilliant sports agent willing to do anything to acquire the largest possible contracts for his clients, is facing a crisis of conscience. After re-evaluating himself and the person he has become, Jerry expresses his new-found doubts in an essay that attacks the sports agent industry. As a result he ends up losing his job, as well as all of his clients -- except Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), an unexceptional and egomaniacal Arizona Cardinals wide receiver. Jerry's secretary, Dorothy Boyd (Renie Zellweger), also leaves the agency to join him in his new endeavor, moved by his passionate appeal.
