Geno Smith Says He Wasn’t “Recruited” By Jay-Z

Geno Smith is now firing back at the critics, jealous agents, and reps from the NFLPA who seem to think that Jay Z is a runner, and recruited Smith to hire Roc Nation Sports as his agent.

As we reported yesterday, the NFLPA sent a letter of inquiry to Smith’s agent, Kim Miale, who will need to respond to allegations that Jay Z recruited Smith for his agency.

Today Smith made it clear via The New York Daily News that “he’s not worried about anything.”

“I don’t have any concerns,” Smith said. “Jay-Z didn’t recruit me. I chose Roc Nation Sports for management because it was something that myself and my family came to a conclusion and we felt comfortable with. And I’m happy to be a part of it. Here, I’m here to talk about football. That’s life outside of football, and what I do in this locker room and on that field is what matters now. “

As I reported yesterday, a lot of veteran agents are upset that Smith chose the unknown Miale over more high profile agents.

Smith simply will allow Jay Z to handle his marketing situation, and might have just wanted to keep all things under one roof.

    Again, quit with the propaganda. No one is jealous of Jay Z, simply obey the rules and its all good.
