I’ve been following the story of Geno Smith every since the 2013 NFL Draft, that seems like it happened last year, but that’s another story. There was just a lot of hoopla about him not getting picked in the first round. Well, now he’s the New York Jet’s rookie quarterback and he’s on his road to adjusting to the Pro-Football life on and off the field.
The internets went nuts when people got word that the new sports agent Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter had a meeting with the rookie. You see, everyone was wondering if the mogul was about to sign Geno Smith, being that he no longer has representation. He fired his previous agents, Select Sports after a surprising fall in the 2013 NFL Draft. Like many others, I thought that Smith would get picked in the 1st round, but Nah. Geno spoke about his meeting with Jay Thursday afternoon at the Rookie Premiere in Los Angeles.
“Obviously he’s seen as a pop icon, but I’m not starstruck in those instances,” Smith revealed. “We spent some time talking, and that was about it. It’s just about learning. I picked his brain. He’s a good guy.”
Will he join Jay-Z’s Roc Nation? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. He still doesn’t have representation and it’s not his top priority to find one.
“There’s no rush to make a decision,” Smith said. “I’ve interviewed some guys. I’ve got a lot of time. Right now, my main focus is everything I do inside that facility.”
Well, okay. Read more at the source Sbnation.
