Jay-Z continues to expand his Roc Nation Sports roster, recently signing New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith.
The 39th overall pick in the second round, Smith becomes just the third athlete added to Hov’s sports management company. Despite having a big name like Jay-Z behind you as a manager, Smith says he plans to remain humble and focus on what’s important: football.
“I think it’s just [Jay-Z’s] agency,” said Smith. “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 is comfortable with it, I’m comfortable with it. I’m just going to move on from there, not let it be a big deal, remain humble and keep focusing on football.”
The Roc Nation Sports roster includes New York Yankees player Robinson Cano and WNBA star Skylar Diggins, who was recently gifted with a Mercedes Benz from the agency for graduating from Norte Dame.
