Steinberg’s Comeback Continues with Super Bowl MVP Mahomes
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The real-life Jerry Maguire is riding a nice comeback wave. Agent Leigh Steinberg was battling alcoholism and bankruptcy a decade ago. Now he has another Super Bowl MVP client in Patrick Mahomes, saw former client Edgerrin James elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame and likely will have two clients taken in the first round of this year’s NFL draft. Steinberg calls those the three highest points when representing athletes. Steinberg turns 71 next month and has no intention of slowing down. Next month also marks his 10th sober anniversary.
