Geno Smith Signs with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports Agency
New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith has officially signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports Agency.
“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, and I’m comfortable with it. I’m just going to move on from there. It’s not going to be a big deal. I’ll just remain humble and keep focusing on football.”
Smith was told some might see his hiring of Smith as an indication he’s interested more in show biz than football.
“That’s perception, I don’t worry about the outside world’s perception when it comes to that type of stuff,” he said. “I’m comfortable with who I am, strong in my faith, I know this isn’t because of an image thing or trying to market myself.
“It’s just about being comfortable with the guys who are going to represent me. That’s ultimately why I made that decision.”
