Report: Roc Nation Sports going after Geno Smith

geno smithAccording to ProFootballTalk.com, as New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith looks for a new agency to represent him, Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports had a chance to make their own pitch to the rookie.

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.

 

CAA, which has been working with Roc Nation, wasn’t involved in the process.  Roc Nation’s presentation came from a certified NFLPA agent who works for the agency Jay-Z owns.

I’m sure a certified agent was involved with meeting with Smith, but I highly doubt that Jay-Z wasn’t there as well and if he was, he would be in violation of the runner rule.  But we already know the NFLPA is willing to look the other way.
