The jaws of fans routinely drop when the top athletes in the world are handed contracts that can run up to $400 million. Of course, there is always a superb agent behind a massive contract, and here are the top 10 sports agents in sports today.
Mendes represents such famous soccer players as Cristiano Ronaldo, Angel di Maria, James Rodriguez, Radamel Falcao and Jose Mourinho. Suffice to say, soccer players dream of having Mendes represent them.
Rosenhaus is widely known for his confrontational negotiation style, although this has paid dividends in past years and is a big reason why he represents Frank Gore, Anquan Boldin and many others.
Pelinka has shot up the ranks of NBA agents over the last decade, and he now boasts a client list that includes Kobe Bryant, Eric Gordon, Andre Iguodala and Andre Drummond.
Duffy is the perfect model for the athlete-turned-agent, and his keen eye for talent and slick negotiating skills have brought in clients such as Joakim Noah, Klay Thompson and Rajon Rondo.
Condon is arguably the most powerful agent in the NFL today, as he represents such transcendent talents as Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Robert Griffin III, Adrian Peterson and J.J. Watt.
Barnett was the agent that helped make Lennox Lewis a household name, and he has recently become a staple in the soccer agents industry by representing Ashley Cole, Gareth Bale, Joe Hart and many others.
Brisson is the ultimate super agent in the hockey world, having previously represented Sergei Fedorov and Mats Sundin, and now representing Sidney Crosby, Patrick Kane, Nathan MacKinnon and Erik Johnson.
Tellem is the rare sports agent who can cross over into multiple sports, as he has represented Yu Darvish, Chase Utley, Jason Giambi and Hideki Matsui in MLB, as well as Anthony Davis, Derrick Rose and LaMarcus Aldridge.
Boras has negotiated some of the biggest contracts in sports history while being the go-to agent in MLB over the last 20 years. At one point or another, he represented Prince Fielder, Barry Zito, Kevin Brown, Greg Maddux and Alex Rodriguez.
Jay-Z may be the new kid on the block, but he has come in with a bang. he already represents Skylar Diggins, Kevin Durant and Robinson Cano, and more athletes from all sports will be coming on board soon.
