FLORHAM PARK, N. Nike Air Pegasus Buy Online .J. -- Geno Smith has joined Jay-Z for one big sports and hip-hop collaboration. The New York Jets rookie quarterback has chosen the rap artists new Roc Nation Sports to represent him. Smith, who slipped out of the first round last month and fell to the Jets in the second round at No. 39 overall, fired his agents -- Select Sports -- shortly after the NFL draft. The former West Virginia star met with a handful of agents before announcing Wednesday that he had chosen Jay-Zs agency, which is partnered with Creative Artists Agency. Smith insisted after practice that Jay-Z didnt play "that big of a role" in his final decision -- although the quarterback recently tweeted a photo of him with the hip-hop star. "I think its just his agency," Smith said. "When you talk about being in New York from a standpoint of what they can do in the city, the connections that they have, I think its a good move. My mother and my family were comfortable with it, and Im comfortable with it. Im just going to move on from there. Its not going to be a big deal. "Ill just remain humble and keep focusing on football." Kimberly Miale, recently hired by Jay-Z, whose given name is Shawn Carter, will serve as Smiths contract agent. Smith will be Miales first NFL client. Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano and former Notre Dame star Skylar Diggins, drafted No. 3 overall by the WNBAs Tulsa Shock, have also recently signed with Roc Nation. Smith, who is competing with Mark Sanchez among others for the teams starting job, said the decision to go with Jay-Z is not an indication that hes focused on his image and marketing opportunities -- as speculated by some. "Its not that important to me, honestly," Smith said. "The only thing thats important to me is the image thats perceived around this locker room, the guy I am to my teammates, to my coaches and the work I put in on the football field. Im all about football. "Im all about getting better." Jets coach Rex Ryan also brushed off any thoughts that he and the organization might have some concern about a second-round pick signing with perhaps the biggest rap star in the world. "I dont worry about it, no, I dont," Ryan said. "This is the young mans decision, and Im sure hes done a lot of work and preparation on hiring who he thinks is the best person to represent him. I dont think theres going to be a loss of focus or anything else. I can tell you this right now: He knows that he has to focus on the job at hand here and Im confident thatll happen. "I dont even think about who he hired." Smith is not the first NFL player to sign with a hip-hop mogul. New Orleans Saints running back Ricky Williams hired rapper Master Ps No Limit Sports agency to negotiate his rookie deal, which is largely regarded as one of the games worst contracts because it included a minimum base salary and incentives that were difficult to reach. Williams later fired the agency and hired Leigh Steinberg. Nike Air Pegasus 33 Mens .
