A few weeks ago, we told you about how Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was reportedly thinking about signing with Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports. Now, it sounds like a deal is done.
No official announcement has been made just yet—Roc Nation Sports usually "announces" an athlete signing a deal with Jay Z by posting a photo of Jay Z and the athlete on Twitter—but ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that multiple NFL sources have confirmed that Roc Nation Sports will play a role in Suh's future. It's unclear if Roc Nation Sports will handle Suh's upcoming contract negotiations with the Lions or if they will stick to helping Suh pursue new marketing opportunities. But Jay Z will have some role with Suh's career moving forward. And while he already works closely with several other NFL players, including Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz and Jets quarterback Geno Smith, Suh will no doubt be Jay Z's biggest NFL client.
We'll be sure to let you know when Suh's new deal with Roc Nation Sports becomes official.
