Re: What's up with these players blaming agents for falling in the draft?
This is more about the Jay-Z guy luring Geno away from his agent -- which is a violation of NFLPA rules, since Jay-Z has not been certified as an agent. We could end up with agents partnering with celebrities to entice these young men to sign with them.
So we'll see Tom Cruise and Spike Lee and Kim Kardashian and Hugh Hefner and Donald Trump jumping into the fray as agents of agents. Entertainment Tonight and People Magazine and TMZ and the like will cover the recruitment of NFL eligible players as they go to parties at the Playboy mansion and Justin Bieber concerts and shopping with Paris Hilton.
Can you imagine...
Secretary: Mr. Smith, it's Jay Z on line 2.
Rick Smith: Who?
Secretary: Mr. Jay Z, sir.
Rick Smith: The singer guy???
Secretary: Yes, he wants to talk to you about using your picks to trade up to draft Jadeveon Bridgewater, the hot NFL prospect.
Rick Smith: I don't want to talk to that guy. ....Give him to Jimmy.
Secretary: Jimmy the copy boy?
Rick Smith: Yeah, give him to Jimmy. He's the one that impersonated me with Trump, right?
Secretary: *sigh* Yes.
Jimmy: Yo, yo, yo .... 'sup?
