Multiple sources tell ESPN’s Darren Rovell that Manziel has chosen Select Sports Group out of Houston to be his contract agency and LRMR, the firm run by LeBron James’ business partner Maverick Carter, to do his marketing. It is unclear whether he has signed a deal with either firm. Calls placed to SSG and Carter were not immediately returned.
Once Manziel signs with an agency, he would forfeit his NCAA eligibility.
Word is that Johnny Football met Lebron last summer and the two have been close ever since.
Manziel threw for 7,820 yards and 63 touchdowns and rushed for 2,169 yards with 30 scores in his two years at Texas A&M. He became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy in 2012.
