Geno Smith latest pro athlete to sign with Jay-Z’s ‘Roc Nation Sports’

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith has chosen hip-hop star Jay-Z’s new sports agency to represent him.

Smith, who slipped out of the first round last month and fell to the Jets in the second round at No. 39 overall, fired his agents — Select Sports — shortly after the NFL draft. The former West Virginia star met with a handful of agents before announcing Wednesday that he had chosen Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports, which is partnered with Creative Artists Agency.

Kimberly Miale, recently hired by Jay-Z, whose given name is Shawn Carter, will serve as Smith’scontract agent.

Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano and former Notre Dame star Skylar Diggins, drafted No. 3 overall by the WNBA’s Tulsa Shock, have also recently signed with Roc Nation.
