Did NFLPA Enact A ‘Jay-Z’ Rule?
One high profile agent says this of enhanced NFLPA agent rules enacted recently: “It’s a shot across the bow of Jay-Z.”
This is what the agent was was referring to. The union enacted an amendment to its rules tightening undergraduate and post-graduate degree requirements. The rule states they must come from an accredited college but there’s no question that if you don’t have one, this rule would prevent you from recruiting players.
