Steve Feldman
Executive Vice President, Head of Football Division
As head of Paragon's NFL operations, Steve Feldman is a former sports law professor who has distinguished himself in the past twenty years as one of the savviest dealmakers in the sports industry. Prior to launching Paragon, he headed sports management firm Steve Feldman & Associates, which was acquired by The Gersh Agency (TGA) in March 2006. Feldman became senior vice president of TGA's new sports marketing & management division, where he focused on recruiting new clients, negotiating player contracts and other opportunities.

Feldman brings to Paragon a score of current NFL players headlined by veteran All-Pros Rodney Harrison and Corey Dillon from the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots, San Diego Chargers Pro Bowl fullback Lorenzo Neal. Prominent on Feldman's roster are first round draft choices include Marcus Spears of the Dallas Cowboys and Mike Patterson of the Philadelphia Eagles. Always looking forward, Feldman also reps a young group of future ALL PROs that includes Richard Marshall of the Carolina Panthers, James Sanders of the New England Patriots and Daniel Bullocks of the Detroit Lions.

Having broken into the business in 1983 representing All-Pro defensive end Leroy Selmon of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers - making him the highest paid defensive player in NFL history – Feldman achieved a similar milestone five years later, making Rickey Dixon of the Cincinnati Bengals the NFL's highest paid defensive back. Among other stars he has represented over the years are Hall of Fame offensive linemen Jackie Slater (Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams), Super Bowl quarterback Doug Williams (Washington Redskins), Andre Rison (Indianapolis Colts) and Junior Seau (San Diego Chargers).

From 1985-86, Feldman was a sports law professor in the California State University system. He earned his undergraduate degree in biology and sociology from UC Irvine and his J.D. from Pepperdine University, gaining admission to the California State Bar and the NFLPA in 1983. He is the proud father of sons Jason and Jared, with whom he enjoys surfing trips to Costa Rica as often as he can.
