NFLPA has talked to CAA about Jay-Z/Victor Cruz situation. unlikely to be viewed as violation because of long friendship betwn Jay-Z & Cruz

The reason the NFLPA is looking into the situation is because many agents are upset and believe that CAA violated the “runner rule.”
Dear @nflpa will you be releasing a statement on the Jay-Z Cruz CAA thing? Lots of ?s amongst colleagues about runner rules clarification

In case you don’t know the runner rule prohibits people who aren’t certified agents from recruiting players to other sports agencies.
The problem is that it doesn’t look like anything will be done since both CAA and Jay-Z are so powerful.
