Gurley hires Jay-Z firm as agent

Todd Gurley is officially ineligible to play football for Georgia again as the junior tailback recently signed with an agent.

Gurley has inked with Roc Nation Sports, founded by hip-hop artist Jay-Z. He is just the sixth football client for Roc Nation, joining Dez Bryant, Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Geno Smith and Ndamukong Suh.

Gurley was highly productive in the short time he was on the field this season. After missing four games due to an NCAA suspension for accepting improper benefits, he averaged 151.8 yards rushing in six games and scored 10 touchdowns. Gurley was lost for the season to an ACL injury against Auburn on Nov. 15.
