Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is in talks to sign an agreement with Jay Z and Roc Nation as his search for new representation goes on, with ESPN.com reporting that the pair are close to formally confirming a new partnership.

Jay Z has been actively seeking star players across a variety of sports to bolster Roc Nation's presence over the last 12 months, securing deals with Kevin Durant, Robinson Cano and Victor Cruz as marquee clients.

Suh fired his agents towards the end of last season and is actively looking for a new team to help contract negotiations with the Lions, which are expected to take place during the offseason.

ESPN.com confirmed earlier today that they expect Suh to sign with Roc Nation imminently, but are unclear over whether the agreement is purely for marketing and sponsorship or will lead to direct involvement in contract talks.

The 27-year-old recorded 49 tackles and 5.5 sacks last season but was unable to help Detroit emerge as a play-off challenger from the NFC, with the Lions drifting to a disappointing 7-9 as their post-season hopes faded with four defeats in the last month of the campaign.
