    The NFLPA is looking into the question of whether Jay-Z recruited Jets quarterback Geno Smith to sign with Jay-Z’s firm, Roc Nation Sports.  Basically, Smith is saying he wasn’t recruited by Jay-Z , but Smith is avoiding the question of who actually recruited him and opting not to talk about anything other than football. “Jay-Z didn’t recruit me,” Jets quarterback Geno Smith said Thursday, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Smith posted a photo of himself with Jay-Z on Instagram last week before the announcement that he had hired Roc Nation, which raised more questions about whether the entertainer recruited the player. So who was that someone?  Jay-Z?  Miale?  Someone else? The NFL Players Association has sent a letter of inquiry to contract agent Kim Miale, who was recently hired by Jay-Z and represented no players in the league before Smith came aboard. The investigation is ongoing. Someone allowed Smith and his family to reach “a conclusion that we feel comfortable with,” especially since Smith met with multiple agencies before hiring Roc Nation Sports.
