Recently, he has taken a bit of heat for holding Quinn out of training camp and for possibly having something to do with Quinn charging $75+ for autographs [Brady Quinn Signing (not with the Browns)].
In the midst of representing his popular clients, including Quinn, Condon has decided to move out of his longtime home of Kansas City [IMG Expands, Kobe Stays, and Condon Leaves]. And now, the Kansas City Star has decided to release a lengthy article highlighting the sports agent legend, Tom Condon [Meet the money man to the pros].

- He has represented the #1 pick in the NFL draft for 5 out of the last 10 years.
