Manziel’s collegiate brand exploded the last two years, and he’ll be a first-round pick – probably top five – come May in this year’s NFL Draft.
ESPN reported that the financial terms weren’t disclosed, but Manziel’s deal will be the highest price paid for a rookie in this year’s class. Manziel hired Lebron James’ business manager and Fenway Sports Group.
