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.
