Not a Big Deal Says Geno Smith

Not a Big Deal Says Geno Smith

New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith announced after Wednesday’s organized team activities practice he has hired Jay-Z’s newly formed Roc Nation Sports as his representation.

darrenrovell Confirmed Geno Smith will be repped by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports. Only contract at this time, not marketing. 5/22/13 1:04 PM

“My mother and my family is comfortable with it, I’m comfortable with it. I’m just going to move on from there, not let it be a big deal, remain humble and keep focusing on football.” ~ Rookie QB Geno Smith on Selecting Jay-Z’s Roc Nation to represent him

My Take:

The amount of tweets I just found when I searched on “Geno” & “Circus”… Come on people, give me a break.  There is no circus here.  This isn’t a big deal but because it’s Jay-Z, it’s a publicity stunt right?

Wrong.  I don’t think it’s a big deal either.  Do You?

    I wouldn’t consider it a smart move, more like a cool move with a high-profile person like Jay-Z. What does he know about marketing?

    • Erik Manassy

      The better question is, what does he know about sports contracts. Marketing, which he isn’t doing for Geno, is probably his strength. Just look at his empire.
