Roc Nation Sports Signing Ndamukong Suh For Contracts, Marketing
Published February 12, 2014
MAGNA CARTA HOLY GRAIL: ESPN.com's Michael Rothstein wrote there is "absolutely nothing wrong with Suh hiring Jay Z as he searches for every NFL player’s holy grail of a new contract and more lucrative endorsement deals." One of the "allures of going with Jay Z is the chance to work with one of the most recognizable people on the planet." Jay Z can "simply put Suh in different circles than almost any other agent or marketer, so it makes sense for him to head in this direction if that is what he wants." Roc Nation has been "looking for someone to give their fledgling agency more credibility with major sports as an agency that can represent established NFL stars." Suh "gives Roc Nation that type of athletic name recognition" (ESPN.com, 2/11).
