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.”
Get it? Bend It Like Beckham .. the movie? Oh forget it! The Soccer star has announced his retirement, which will begin after this season. He started his career in Manchester United, but he is now a global superstar. Time to build off that Brand my man! Beckham has two games left in the season with PSG. During his career he also played for the Los Angeles Galaxy and Real Madrid where he won titles with both clubs. On Friday, he thanked the PSG for “giving him the opportunity to continue but I feel now is the right time to finish my career, playing at the highest level.” That’s right! Go out on a high note!
“If you had told me as a young boy I would have played for and won trophies with my boyhood club Manchester United, proudly captained and played for my country over one hundred times and lined up for some of the biggest clubs in the world, I would have told you it was a fantasy. I’m fortunate to have realized those dreams,” Beckham said.
“I’m honored to represent England both on and off the pitch. … I want to thank all my teammates, the great managers that I had the pleasure of learning from. I also want to thank the fans who have all supported me and given me the strength to succeed.”

According to a survey released by Forbes.com on Monday he is. Tim Tebow was released by the New York Jets last week and is now a free agent, but he was selected America’s Most Influential Athlete, so his popularity hasn’t gone anywhere.
“Tebow had the most influence on fans, according to 29% of respondents, finishing ahead of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps (25%), Jamaican track star Usain Bolt (23%) and Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter (22%).”
The results were gathered by using surveys from Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research to determine the winner. They also took their endorsement potential into account. So, who was the next-closet NFL player? That would be Peyton Manning!
