It appears Jay-Z and his RocNation sports management company is under investigation after the signing of Geno Smith. Jay-Z who with his RocNation sports management company has also signed New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano and Tulsa Shock rookie Skylar Diggins has come under recent investigation.
Geno Smith who was acquired by the New York Jets as this year’s second round pick in the NFL draft. Smith the former University of West Virginia quarterback and Jay-Z sparked an investigation recently after a photo of the two was found posted on Instagram.
According to the NFLPA rules, it states that only agents certified with the association can be involved with the recruitment of potential clients.
So, what sparked this investigation, it was an “unauthorized” photo of Jay-Z and Geno Smith posted on Instagram prior to the signing of Geno Smith.
Also, Smith’s agent John Thornton may have had some involvement with this investigation as he was quoted as saying that Geno Smith had, had meetings with Jay prior to their signing. Now, the sports agent Thornton has said he was misquoted.
Lets just hope this ordeal gets worked out before the start of the NFL season.
