Jay-Z's Roc Nation To Represent Geno Smith In Contract Work
Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports has signed Jets draft pick QB Geno Smith for representation. NFLPA-certified agent Kim Miale, recently hired by Roc Nation, will represent Smith in playing contract work (Liz Mullen, Staff Writer).
Smith, who fired his agents after last month's NFL Draft, said that Jay-Z "had little to do with the move." Smith said of Roc Nation: "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." Miale has no other active NFL clients (NYPOST.com, 5/22).
