Geno Smith, the recently-drafted quarterback with the New York Jets, signed with “inexperienced” Roc Nation NFLPA-certified agent, Kim Miale, and the agency wants to see if Jay-Z was talking to Smith about a contract before Roc Nation had secured the services of an agent, especially in light of a recent photo of Geno Smith and Jay-Z that was posted to Instagram while Smith was agentless.

If Jay-Z was talking about an agency contract with Smith before Roc Nation had hired Miale, that would be a violation of the NFLPA’s protocol, and insiders say they must take swift action to discipline Roc Nation if any violation took place.
