Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Agency Makes Pitch For Which NY Jets Player?
In just a few weeks, Jets rookie QB Geno Smith has learned what it means to join the tabloid culture of New York City. At least one agency wooing him as a client can empathize.
ProFootballTalk.com reported Thursday that Jay Z’s Roc Nation agency was one of five representatives that made a pitch to Smith during two days of meetings with prospective agents. Also involved: Eugene Parker, Fletcher Smith, Joel Segal and Rick Smith of Priority Sports.
Jay-Z isn’t actually a licensed agent, so the presentation came from an agent from the company Jay-Z owns. It’s believed that Jay-Z’s partner — CAA Sports — would do much of the heavy lifting as the rapper/mogul jumped into the agent business, but CAA Sports was not involved in the process, according to PFT.
