A Johnny Manziel photograph surfaced that shows the Texas A&M Aggies quarterback signing autographs on a covered pool table while autograph broker Drew Tieman stands over him. ESPN released the photograph on Sept. 13 proving that there might be more to the case than the NCAA originally discovered.
This is huge news, as the NCAA said they had no evidence that Manziel signed anything for money and only suspended him for one half of football in the Aggies' first game of the season. With the team heading into their biggest game of 2013 tomorrow against the Alabama Crimson Tide, this could not have come at a worse time.
Neither Tieman nor Manziel responded to ESPN with comments about the photograph. Texas A&M did not allow Manziel access to the press before their game with Alabama.
The NCAA investigation looked into whether or not Manziel accepted money to sign a great deal of autographs and said they found no evidence he did according to evidence he provided them with. However, this new photograph looks pretty bad, since the autograph broker was standing over Manziel's shoulder with more photos for him to sign.
If there is further proof that Manziel did accept money for the over 1,100 autographs he allegedly signed for Tieman, this Johnny Manziel photograph could be enough to kick him out of college football permanently.
