The former West Virginia star and new New York Jets quarterback may sign with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports label for representation, according to reports. Smith famously fired his agents after dropping to the second round of the NFL Draft last month, and has endured a torrent of negative press ever since.
Reports of Smith being lazy, unprepared and a malcontent have flooded out since Smith was drafted, but Jay-Z may be just the person to rehabilitate his image.
“Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Smith has wrapped up two days of meetings with potential successors to Select Sports Group, the agency Smith hired after completing his college career at West Virginia. Making presentations were Joel Segal, Rick Smith of Priority Sports, Eugene Parker, Fletcher Smith, and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation agency.”
Smith could join Yankees star Robinson Cano and New York Giants star Victor Cruz as prominent NYC stars signed to Roc Nation. Do you think the Geno Smith Jay-Z connection is a good move for the QB?
