Detroit Lions' Ndamukong Suh could hire Jay-Z as agent

Jay-Z representing Ndamukong Suh? It’s likely to happen according to Jason La Canfora, CBS Sports’ NFL Insider. Andrew Brandt of tweeted Thursday night that he was hearing the same thing.

The Detroit Lions defensive tackle fired his agents, Eugene Parker and Roosevelt Barnes, on Wednesday. He must wait five days before hiring a new agent.

Suh and the Lions are expected to start talks about a contract extension soon. Currently Suh’s hit on the salary cap for the 2014 season would be more than $22 million. He could be looking at a contract similar to the five-year, $55 million deal of Bengals’ defensive tackle Geno Atkins.

Roc Nation Sports, the sports agency founded by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and the Creative Artists Agency, represents New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith, New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia  and Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant among others.
