FEBRUARY 13, 2020 – It’s wonderful,” said Steinberg, who added that Mahomes is the kind of player and person he has always sought to represent, someone of high character and strong work ethic willing to be a role model and give back to the community. “Again, first of all because of the type of person he is. He has a unique skillset. I still love the opportunity to enhance the best values in young people and prepare them not only for their playing career, but for a second career.”
Steinberg, who turns 71 next month, has picked up a nice second wind himself.
A powerful agent since 1975, Steinberg had an all-star list of clients that included many who would become Hall of Famers, including Young, Troy Aikman — also a Super Bowl MVP — Warren Moon, Howie Long, Thurman Thomas, Derrick Thomas and Bruce Smith. Known for a squeaky clean image, he battled alcoholism and bankruptcy, and let his agent certification lapse.
