Highly rated quarterback Matt Leinart has fired his agent two weeks before the NFL draft.

According to ESPN, the former USC quarterback has fired high profile agent Leigh Steinberg. Sources within the NFL Players Association tell ESPN that Leinart filed the necessary paperwork with the union on Monday. He must now wait until five days before signing with another agent.

On the marketing side, Leinart is represented by Creative Artists Agency, which recently hired Tom Condon away from IMG. Condon currently represents high profile players Peyton and Eli Manning.

It's uncertain why Leinart dropped Steinberg, who was also fired by USC tackle Winston Justice, another first round projection.

Justice has hired Gary Uberstine as his new agent.

I may be wrong, but wasn't Jerry McGuire loosely based on Leigh Steinberg?
