A photo of Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel signing autographs for a South Florida autograph broker has surfaced in an ESPN.com report by Darren Rovell.
In the photo obtained by Rovell, Manziel is seen signing autographs while autograph broker Drew Tieman oversees the process. According to the report, Manziel signed more than 1,100 autographs for Tieman over a two-day period while Manziel was in Miami for the BCS title game.
Manziel was suspended for the first half of Texas A&M's season-opening game against Rice because Manziel violated the NCAA's bylaw 126.96.36.199, which states no student-athlete can allow their likeness to be sold even if the athlete doesn't profit from it.
After being suspended for the first half of Texas A&M’s game against Rice, Manziel completed six passes for 94 yards with 19 rushing yards.
