NOT a certain percentage, with a set monetary figure in place agents would have no reason to press for the highest contract imaginable unless said player told them to push for it
Since every agent always makes his guy take the highest offer he has so the agent can make more $$$ right?
Agents get too much of a bad rep when all they're really doing is playing the system.
