Professional career[edit]

First stint with Colts[edit]

Selected by the Colts in the fourth round (131st overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft, Condren did not see action in the first three preseason games of the 2007 season following a groin injury. He dressed and saw action for the first time in the final preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He survived final cuts and began the season on the Colts' active roster

Condren was the Colts' deactivated players list for weeks 1-4 in the 2007 season. Because of injuries in the Colts secondary, Condren was activated for the Colts' fifth regular season game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, playing on kick coverage/special teams.

After several weeks on the deactivated list, Condren again dressed and played in the Colts' week 8 game against the Carolina Panthers on the punt/kickoff coverage team. Week 9 again saw Brannon return to the inactive list as the Colts lost to the New England Patriots. Injuries in Week 10 allowed Condren to be activated and playing against the San Diego Chargers. Throughout the rest of the regular season, Condren was frequently on the active roster, playing mainly on special teams. As the Colts rested their number one safeties in the second part of the final regular season game, Brannon played safety for an extended period of time.

After participating with the Colts in the 2008 preseason Condren was waived by the Colts during final cuts on August 30.
