Roc Nation Sports has added New York Jets quarterback and NFL rookie Geno Smith to its ever-growing roster. XXL reports that Smith has signed a deal with the newly-launched firm, joining New York Yankee Robinson Cano and the WNBA‘s Skylar Diggins. “I think it’s just [Jay-Z's] agency,” said Smith. “When you talk about being in New York from a standpoint of what they can do in the city, the connections that they have, I think it’s a good move. My mother and my family is comfortable with it, I’m comfortable with it. I’m just going to move on from there, not let it be a big deal, remain humble and keep focusing on football.” The former West Virginia University star was drafted by the New York Jets during the second round of this year’s NFL draft.
Even though pro quarterback Tim Tebow didn’t have a particularly awe-inspiring season on the New York Jets‘ bench, that isn’t keeping the football star from expanding his brand. Now, in a recent article from Mashable, it appears that Ludacris has enlisted Tebow to design a line of headphones for his company Soul Electronics. Earlier this week, Luda and Tebow unveiled Tebow’s new line of Soul Electronics headphones at 2013 International CES conference. According to the product description, Tebow’s line of headphones will feature two models – one a more sport friendly version called the Combat+, and the other made for more casual listeners called the Jet. ”I was so interested in having something comfortable I could practice on the field in before games,” said Tebow. “So many headphones can feel good and sound great, but when you’re warming up, they fall off and that is a big distraction. We came up with these Combat models to help you keep that focus. People who try them out will hopefully believe in them. We have headphones for athletes who want to train and some for those who want to fly or even sleep. They are even great for moms who are doing the dishes and listening to their country or gospel music. Whoever you are, whatever you are doing, we have something that fits you.” Tebow will also serve as Soul Electronics’ new brand ambassador. Images of the headphones can be seen below.
