Default Leigh Steinberg fired by Justice and Leinart

Is he having a bad week or what? What did he or didn't he do for these guys? Does anyone have any info? Just curious to know.

Here's some info from the rumor mill, profootballtalk.com

Quote:
We reported last week that Steinberg and co-agent Chuck Price were worried that Leinart would hire Tom Condon, who last week left IMG and joined Creative Artists Agency, which already handles Leinart's off-field work.

We received a tip over the weekend that, despite Steinberg's comments, Leinart was still planning to make a change. We were unable to corroborate the information, so we (stupidly) didn't go with it.

The tipster also told us that Price will remain in the picture, and that he and Condon will work together in the representation of Leinart.

As we explained last week in connection with the decision of USC tackle Winston Justice to terminate Steinberg, making a change before the draft usually isn't a good idea. The more prudent move typically is for the player to switch after the draft, since a pre-draft move will only raise questions.

Looking at the situation more broadly, we wonder whether Condon is the best choice to represent Leinart, given that two of the teams that might be in the running to select Leinart (the Saints and the Jets) already have starting quarterbacks represented by Condon.

If, in the end, the Saints or the Jets select Leinart, there's a decent chance that Drew Brees or Chad Pennington, respectively, will part ways with Condon.
I think the reason Leinart fired Steinberg is that he couldn't put Matt in the number #2 slot. Or ensure that Leinart would end up in New York. Condon is probably telling Leinart that he can make that happen. He's already helped some, by allowing the Saints to get out of Brees contract after the 1st year, and reducing Pennington's cap hit. Seems very Jerry Maguire-ish.
