Jets QB Geno Smith Signs To Roc Nation Sports
The New York Jets rookie quarterback has chosen Jay Z’s new Roc Nation Sports to represent him. Smith, who slipped out of the first round last month and fell to the Jets in the second round at No. 39 overall, fired his agents - Select Sports - shortly after the NFL draft.
Smith, who is competing with Mark Sanchez among others for the team’s starting job, said the decision to go with Jay-Z is not an indication that he’s focused on his image and marketing opportunities - as speculated by some.
”It’s not that important to me, honestly,” Smith said. ”The only thing that’s important to me is the image that’s perceived around this locker room, the guy I am to my teammates, to my coaches and the work I put in on the football field. I’m all about football.
”I’m all about getting better.”
