The NFL Investigates Jay-Z Over Signing Geno Smith [VIDEO]

Jay-Z is going all out with his new sports agency Roc Nation.  So far his company has signed some of sports newest and brightest stars.  However, the NFL Players Association has some issues with his latest signee.


According to reports the NFL Players Association would like a word with Mr. Carter regarding his involvement with New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith’s signing to his Roc Nation sports agency.  Apparently they think he may have violated the “runners rule.”

So you’ll know, the “runner rule” forbids anyone without the appropriate credentials (aka “runners”) from being involved in the recruiting process.  While Jay-Z has applied for all of the necessary documents to deem him an official sports agent, he isn’t official just yet.

Geno Smith was selected 39th in the NFL draft and made headlines shortly after when gave walking papers to his agent and signed with Hov’s newly formed Roc Nation sports agency.  However, according to Geno’s camp he is being represented by Kimberly Miale NOT Jay-Z.

So who is Kimberly Miale?  She serves as the contract adviser for Roc Nation Sports.  She graduated Providence College, Magna Cum Laude, in 2001 and then attended Suffolk Law School.  She followed graduation with a stint as a clerk to the Justices of the Connecticut Superior Court before becoming an associate at Tucker, Heiftz & Saltzman, LLP, a position she appears to currently hold.

The New York Jets rookie made it clear that Jay had nothing to do with his decision, but the NFLPA grew suspicious upon discovering a photo of the two together that had been posted around the time of the signing.

Long story short, the investigation will look into whether or not Hov’s involvement violated the “runner rule,” which was implemented in April 2012.

Currently signed to Roc Nation sports are New York Yankees star Robinson Canó, New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz and WNBA baller, Skylar Diggins.
