New York Jets: Geno Smith A Prima Donna?
I am not one to judge quickly, but according to Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal, Geno Smith has “fired his agents from Select Sports“. Firing your sports agent because you thought you “deserved to be and should have been the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft”, according to Manish Mehta of the Daily News, gives him prima donna status.
Smith, you are going to be have a clipboard in your hand for your first season as a back up quarterback to Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets. This is not the time or the place for that kind of behavior.
You know you did not end your college football career at West Virginia on a high note, right? By throwing five interceptions in four of the six losses that your team suffered, you had a hand in sinking your stock in this year’s past NFL draft to a low point. It brought questions about your work ethic, attitude, and approach to the game.
So to say this was your sport agent’s fault is unbecoming of you. You haven’t even stayed on Broadway for a week yet, and you’re already acting up?
According to the NFL rule, you have to wait five days in order to hire a new sports agent. Lets see if you will have any takers. I hear Jay-Z just opened Roc Nation Sports in partnership with CAA Sports. Hopefully they can be of assistance to you and your growth as an NFL player.
