Jay Z Signs New York Giants’ Hakeem Nicks To Roc Nation Sports

(AllHipHop News) Jay Z is slowly beginning to own the entire New York Giants roster. Less than a year after teammate Victor Cruz signs to Jay Z’s sports agency Roc Nation Sports, veteran wide receiver Hakeem Nicks joins suit.

According to reports, Nicks will have a similar deal as Cruz with Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports handling marketing and endorsement with contractual negotiations left up to its partner Creative Artists Agency. This signing comes at a potentially transitional time for Nicks as he is expected to become an unrestricted free agent and has expressed interest to resign with the New York Giants.

Baseball superstar Robinson Cano was the first Roc Nation Sports client to enter free agency as a member of the New York Yankees last year. Cano and Roc Nation Sports rejected the New York Yankees’ reported offer of seven years/$175 million and accepted the Seattle Mariners 10 year/$240 million offer.
