Lions DT Ndamukong Suh, who fired agents and is hiring new agents, is expected to have Jay-Z and Roc Nation included in circle of advisers.
It is uncertain whether Jay Z would negotiate Suh’s next contract or simply help him with marketing. But whatever the arrangement, Jay Z is expected to be in Suh’s circle of advisers, according to ESPN. I am not a huge fan of Jay Z representing football players, but as a marketing guru that could be a smart move.
Jay Z recently signed New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia to a growing clientele that also includes Robinson Cano, Kevin Durant, Victor Cruz and Geno Smith.
Suh, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract with the Lions, left Relativity Sports last month to seek new representation. I don’t know what type of money he expects to get because to be honest he has been horrible on the football field. He is overrated and has not proven that he deserves any big time money. He will need to step up in my opinion to get a big contract extension.
