Found August 06, 2013 on Fox Sports Southwest:
According to ESPN, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel's getting paid to sign autographs wasn't a one-time deal. Manziel allegedly was paid 7,500 to sign helmets while attending a Walter Camp Foundation event in January according to a report released Tuesday. That event was after the Manziel trip to Miami in which ESPN's Outside the Lines reported that Manziel was also paid a flat five-figure for his signatures during a trip to the BCS National Championship game. Manziel has not commented on either of the reports. He did work out with his team Monday when the Aggies opened practice in College Station. As of Sunday, Manziel was scheduled to speak at the media day but that decision was changed after the first ESPN report broke. Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin said Manziel would continue to get the No. 1 starter repetitions at practice, even as an NCAA investigation into Manziel's activities looms. The school has hired Lightfoot, Franklin and White, the same Alabama-based law firm that Auburn hired when Cam Newton had issues with the NCAA in 2010.

  • Johnny Manziel should feel blessed. Blessed to have so many in support of his "bold" wrong doing. I'm just wondering where was Drew Brees when his teammates, Reggie Bush, was confronted with "shady" dealings?? Where was all of the news reports that said "oh he's (Bush)young and needs to learn this business." Think back how Cam Newton was treated when he was said to have done a "shady money deal." Media painted him guilty before the evidence said he's innocent. Perhaps now some can understand why a lot of people--especially some Afro-Americans--felt that the NOT GUILTY verdict in the Trayvon Martin case was "suspect."
