Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is reportedly on the verge of securing Jay Z and his company Roc Nation as his advisory group for the foreseeable future.
Suh fired his previous agents just before the Pro Bowl in Hawaii and now a deal is getting closer that will join forces between the NFL star and the worldwide rap star.
Despite the confirmed reports of the exchanges the pair have shared, it is still unclear as to what position Jay Z would actually take up in connection with Suh. He may help negotiate Suh's next big contract with the Detroit Lions or simply represent the defenders new marketing arm.
Jay Z already has some very famous clients under his wing at Roc Nation, this includes NBA superstar Kevin Durant who signed for Carter's company on the 24th June 2013.
He also has an existing arrangement with New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, all his contract negotiations with his franchise are handled by Jay Z who covers the marketing and creative artists agency aspects of the business.
A contract extension for Suh is expected on the horizon, most likely happening this current off-season as Detroit would like to pen the star defensive tackle down to a long term contract.
The contract negotiations will convene with Suh holding a lot of power in the talks, his salary cap numbers of $22.4million give him a lot of leverage for future deals he wishes to make, with more than likely the help of rap mogul Jay Z.
