Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who recently fired his agents, will be represented by Jay Z and Roc Nation for both contract negotiations and marketing, Adam Schefter and Darren Rovell of ESPN citing sources.
Jay Z recently signed New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia to a growing clientele that also includes Robinson Cano, Kevin Durant, Victor Cruz and Geno Smith.
But Suh represents Jay Z’s biggest football client.
Suh, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract with the Lions, left Relativity Sports last month to seek new representation.
The move came days after Lions president Tom Lewand and general manager Martin Mayhew said the club and Suh have expressed a desire for him to stay in Detroit long term.
