According to reports, The NCAA is investigating Johnny Manziel. Manziel may have been paid for signing autographs on memorabilia in back in January during his visit to Miami for the National Championship.
Two sources told ESPN's "Outside the Lines" that he agreed to sign the merchandise in exchange for a flat fee. The fee is said to be five-figures. The sources say they saw the signing but they did not actually see Manziel receive the money.
Manziel apparently signed the photos and memorabilia for an autograph broker named Drew Tieman. If the NCAA finds that he has violated the rules, he could be ruled ineligible.
