Johnny Manziel was allegedly given $7,500 to sign football helmets for an autograph broker on the East Coast reports ESPN.
The latest signings are said to have occurred Jan 11-12 while Manziel was attending the Walter Camp Football Foundation event.
The broker initially offered to sell videos of Manziel signing helmets to ESPN but later backed out. Videos of the Texas A&M quarterback signing full and mini-sized helmets were recorded by the broker to be used as proof of authentication for PSA/DNA.
Manziel planned to use the money for new rims for his vehicle. Manziel’s friend and personal assistant — Nate Fitch — was not present or involved in the alleged transactions.
If the NCAA investigation finds that Manziel has violated NCAA Bylaw 188.8.131.52 — accepting money for promoting or advertising the commercial sale of a product or service — he could be ruled ineligible.
