At first glance, Manziel might¨ve been getting ripped off by signing that much merchandise for only three grand.
Certainly other people felt that he was and offered him a better deal for even more money.
A man saw Manziel signing the 10,000 pieces and offered him to pay Manziel $30,000 to sign autographs for him instead.
Manziel took the man¨s phone number and later decided to take him up on his offer.
＾So, this guy¨s pretty much, ｀All right, go to this room at the Fontainebleau [hotel]. All this stuff will be in there laid out. When you¨re done, just send me a picture of all of it. I¨ll give you the code to the safe, the money will be in there,’￣ Manziel explained.
He continued by saying that he went back to South Beach for roughly four months to sign autographs.
It¨s a real shame Manziel didn¨t put this much work into his actual football career.
This confession comes eight years after the NCAA found no evidence of wrongdoing on Manziel¨s part.
Despite that, Manziel was suspended for the first half of the 2013 season due to violating rules by selling his likeness for commercial purposes.
He declared for the 2014 NFL Draft and Cleveland selected him 22nd overall.
Manziel had a very short lived stint in the CFL before getting banned from that league.
He did not follow the rules set by the team and was cut by Montreal after one season.
No other organizations in the CFL are allowed to sign Manziel, so he was forced to play elsewhere.
The former Heisman award winner completed 64.2 percent of his passes with 1,290 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions in eight games.
