Was agent behind Eli Manning trade to Giants?
I still believe the Chargers trade of Eli Manning was agent-driven by Tom Condon, Manning's representative. No one will admit it. "We made the deal," Giants owner John Mara said. "There is no looking back. He's the guy here. But, until he wins a Super Bowl, I guess people will say we gave up much too much for him. Our philosophy is that if you have a chance to get a guy, to get a franchise quarterback, you pull the trigger." Think about it. Head coach Marty Schottenheimer's agent? Tom Condon. Chargers quarterback Drew Brees was coming off a bad year. His agent? Tom Condon. Tailback LaDainian Tomlinson's good friend � still � is Brees. LT's agent? Tom Condon. Manning's agent? Tom Condon. -- San Diego Union-Tribune
