Jay-Z is on a roll! His latest acquisition of WNBA star Skylar Diggins had us talking and he just keeps going, this time adding New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith to his roster.
Geno Smith has been courted by several agencies since he cut his agent after not getting drafted in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft. While Jay-Z couldn’t directly court him, I’m sure his name was a big draw for Smith:
“I think it’s just his agency,” Smith said. “When you talk about being in New York from a standpoint of what they can do in the city, the connections that they have, I think it’s a good move. My mother and my family were comfortable with it. I’m comfortable with it.
Of course he’s comfortable with it!! Coming out of the second round, firing your agent to now being connected to Jay-Z, he seems to be on a roll.
His direct/contract agent will be Kim Miale. She doesn’t represent any players who have ever played in the NFL, although she does represent two players who are not currently affiliated with any teams. This will be interesting.
“I’m just going to move on from there,” Smith added. “It’s not going to be a big deal and just remain humble and keep focusing on football.”
That’s a smart way to think Geno, because the “Gang Green” fans are very serious about the Jets. They expect your to bring it!
I hope he delivers.
