Darren Rovell feels sweet vindication.
Johnny Manziel revealed that he “made somewhat of a decent living” by selling his autograph during his playing time at Texas A&M.
The first occasion that Manziel described was when a man approached him in Florida with a chance to make $3,000.
“We’re doing it all sneaky, we don’t want to get caught, we’re trying to learn from everybody else who’s got caught,” Manziel said during the interview. “And I may or may not have gone back to this guy’s condo [in South Beach] and signed probably 10,000 pieces. He gave me three grand.”
Rovell, who currently works for The Action Network, was one of the two bylined reporters on a 2013 ESPN story about the quarterback potentially profiting from autographs.
