Re: What's up with these players blaming agents for falling in the draft?
There is an article on yahoo sports talking about this very situation and saying that it is being investigated by the NFLPA. Here is an excerpt:
In 2012, the NFLPA banned the use of "runners" -- people without appropriate credentials used by agencies to recruit potential clients. And though Smith was technically signed by attorney Kimberly Miale, the potential involvement of Jay-Z, who is not certified as an agent, has other agencies wondering if the rules aren't being circumvented in this case. Albert Breer of NFL.com recently reported that the NFLPA will investigate the process by which Smith was signed.
"For those who want to believe, no facts are necessary, but for those who do not, no amount of evidence will ever be enough."
