NCAA Racks Up More Circumstantial Evidence Against Johnny Manziel


NCAA Racks Up More Circumstantial Evidence Against Johnny Manziel

by Anthony Caruso on August 16, 2013

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel may be facing more heat from the NCAA for

potentially profiting from autograph signings, as more circumstantial evidence is


The NCAA prohibits college players from receiving compensation for autographs or in

any other way profiting during eligibility periods. Last week, ESPN reported that Manziel

participated in two additional autograph sessions in January, culminating in an

estimated 4,400 more autographs he may have signed in exchange for cash. The

allegations, coupled with reported five-figure paydays in recent months, may give the

NCAA more circumstantial evidence with which to prove Manziel violated their policies

and is worthy of suspension.
