Desean Jackson‘s involvement with the music industry soon might not be limited to his own record label. Jackson, who owns Jaccpot Records, fired his former agent Drew Rosenhaus on Sunday and is considering signing with Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation Sports, according to reports from USA Today Sports. The move to drop Rosenhaus had been in the works for months and Jackson had stopped paying fees and cut off all communication to Rosenhaus. This marks the second time the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver has parted ways with an agent in his professional career. Rosenhaus had recently negotiated a five-year, $51 million contract extension for Jackson, but it was publicly known that the 26-year-old receiver from the University of California was growing increasingly frustrated with the process. Jackson notched a career-low 700 yards receiving in 2012 after being limited to 11 games due to a fractured rib injury he suffered in November. Perhaps joining Jay-Z, who has already signed Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz and Jets quarterback Geno Smith to Roc Nation Sports, will aid Jackson in regaining some of his on-field swagger that saw him gain over 2,200 receiving yards in 2009 and 2010.
