After recent reports claimed Philadelphia Eagles star wide receiver DeSean Jackson was on the verge of signing to Roc Nation Sports, new reports claim he will not join Jay-Z’s growing roster.
According to reports, Jackson has decided to hire the same agent responsible for fellow teammate Michael Vick.
After the release of his critically acclaimed (or something) single with Snoop Dogg, Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson apparently decided he didn’t need Jay-Z after all. While speculation mounted that Jackson would sign with the rap mogul-turned-agent, Jackson has apparently chosen to go with established agent Joel Segal instead, according to Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal. Segal also represents Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, whom Jackson has been supportive of recently. (NBC Sports)
Weeks after New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith joined Roc Nation, recent reports claimed Jackson wanted in on the opportunity.
Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson has fired agent Drew Rosenhaus and is considering hiring Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, according to multiple reports. In March 2012, Jackson, after his fourth season with the Eagles, re-signed for $51 million over five years, $15 million of which was guaranteed through mostly the first two years of the contract. But Jackson has told teammates he is now hoping to strike a deal with Roc Nation Sports, according to USA Today Sports, which cited a source with knowledge of the situation. However, a source told ESPN.com’s Darren Rovell that while it’s possible that Jackson desires to be with Roc Nation Sports, to date there have not been any discussions between the two sides. Per NFL Players Association rules, Jackson must wait five days after filing agent-termination paperwork with the union before he begins talking to other agents about representation. (ESPN)
