In a previous postGeno Smith had released his representation and wasn’t in a rush to find a new agent. The internets had gone crazy when news broke that the NY Jets rookie QB had met with Jay-Z. Well, it appears everything worked out and Smith has joined Roc Nation Sports!
“I think it’s just his agency,” Smith said, according to the New York Daily News. “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 were comfortable with it. I’m comfortable with it.”
Smith said the presence of Jay-Z — an iconic hip-hop artist and entrepreneur — played “not that big a role” in his decision. He said being seen as marketable is not important to him.
This kid seems extremely laid back to me. That could be a good or a bad thing. In any case, he is now rocking with Roc Nation and only time will tell where his career is headed with the Roc and the Jets! As for Roc Nation Sports, they appear to be snatching up an impressive roster and stand to be a force to reckon with in the Industry. It’s still early for this newly created venture that’s partnered with CAA Sports; but I’m seeing great things with my 3rd eye.
I’m loving it! David Beckham was spotted after his final home soccer match on Saturday in Paris. Who are those handsome boys? The Beckhams! That’s Brooklyn, 14, Cruz, 8 and Romeo, 10! Beckham announced his retirement last week, so I’m sure this was a bittersweet moment!
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!

No one wants to see any player have to sit out on their dream. Enjoy the visuals!

Nothing like a great dunk to get the crowd going and the teammates fired up! Enjoy! xo @rozOonTheGo #sportsChick
Wide Receiver EMMANUEL SANDERS will be staying with the PITTSBURGH STEELERS. The Steelers organization announced on Sunday that they matched the $2.5 million offer that the New England Patriots made to the restricted free agent. If the Steelers had let Sanders go they would have received a third-round pick from the Patriots.
Instead, they kept the 26 year-old Sanders who caught 44 passes for 626 yards and a touchdown in 2012 and ‘was the only wide receiver to appear in all 16 games for Pittsburgh in 2012.’
”Glad the business side is out of the way,” Sanders posted on his Twitter account Sunday evening. ”Now it’s back to playing football and bringing number 7 back to Pittsburgh.”
