Smith claims didn’t fire agent over slipping Dan Leberfeld

Geno Smith fired his original agents after the draft.

There have been published reports claiming he made the move because he slipped to the second round of the draft. Smith claims that is inaccurate.

“From the standpoint I switched agents because I fell in the draft, I’m not na├»ve,” Smith told SiriusXM NFL Radio. “I understand an agent can’t get you selected higher or lower. It’s based on team needs and the decisions that are made in the front office.”

While he dismisses that angle, he refuses to explain the real reason he purged his first agents.
