Report: Broker says Johnny Manziel given $7,500 for autographs

Posted: Updated:

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was allegedly paid $7,500 to autograph hundreds of items according to a story published Tuesday by ESPN.

An East Coast-based autograph broker showed an ESPN reporter two videos that show Manziel signing helmets and footballs on a hotel room bed.

In the video, Manziel allegedly tells the broker "you never did a signing with me" and not to tell anyone the signings occurred.

The broker said Manziel told him he wanted the $7,500 for new rims for his car.

The broker said the signings happened at a New Haven, Conn. hotel on Jan. 11 and 12 where Manziel was attending an event for the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

The videos, nine minutes in length in total, were originally shot to show proof of authenticity for the autographs, the broker said.

Manziel did not know he was being recorded and the video doesn't show him accepting money, according to the broker.

The allegation is the third in three days involving Manziel and questions over potential payments for autographs.

Manziel could be ruled ineligible by the NCAA for violating rules on accepting money for the sale of a product or service.
