Report: DeSean Jackson could hire Jay-Z's agency to represent him

Christian Petersen

Jay-Z has 99 problems and DeSean Jackson could soon be one. According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles speedy wide receiver could be looking to join Roc Nation Sports, the agency founded by the former Brooklyn Nets minority owner. The path became somewhat obvious when Jackson abruptly dropped long-time agent, Drew Rosenhaus, over the weekend. Add in that Jackson has had a life-long ambition of being part of the rap industry, and all the signs point to a D-Jax and Hova partnership.

Jackson signed a team-friendly five-year deal with the Eagles before the start of last season. Despite being priced at $51 million, Jackson's guarantees on the contract end after this season. The remaining three seasons feature annual salaries that boost into the $10-11 million range. The Eagles could opt to restructure the deal next season, but that is likely the earliest that the team would be impacted by Jackson's new representation.

Roc Nation Sports has already recruited Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz and Jets quarterback Geno Smith over the last few weeks. Jackson would likely try to negotiate a way that the agency would impact his music career. And while his former representation was not the most beloved by Eagles fans, the distraction of music moguls and shiny lights could irk the fanbase even more. That said, Jackson may become even more focused with a new staff and the aspirations for a new deal this season.

Jackson must wait five days before officially hiring new representation due to NFLPA rules.
