Apparently Matt Leinart has no interest in competing for 'Golden Boy' status with Tom Brady. Still a few weeks from even being drafted, USC's Leinart has already fired his agent and, according to Nikki Finke, will join CAA as their first sports signee after the required 5-day nfl grace period ends.

Leinart is in Tennessee right now working out with the Titans sans representation. He is expected to go 2nd or 3rd in the draft and then, we're guessing, will hold out for signing bonuses and incentive packages at the behest of an agency that will likely want to cut it's eye teeth on their first big sports deal.

Meanwhile, the coliseum is still in the running for hosting an NFL team and we haven't heard anything sketchy about USC's other big star and the lock for the #1 pick, Reggie Bush.
