Jets QB Geno Smith selects Roc Nation
By James Walker
New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith is the newest member of Roc Nation.
Smith confirmed to reporters Wednesday that he’s decided to hire hip-hop mogul Jay Z's Roc Nation to represent him during negotiations with the Jets. Smith was New York’s second-round pick and considered the team’s long-term solution at quarterback. He is competing with incumbent Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez for the starting job this summer.
Smith recently fired his old representation -- Select Sports -- after the draft. Smith was not happy with the way the pre-draft process went, in addition to falling out of the first round.
