Johnny Manziel Reveals How Much Money He Made Signing Autographs In College

Former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel could never cut it in the NFL. But his “party boy” mentality has kept him relevant, and he finds ways to make tabloids on a weekly basis.

Manziel is re-surfacing again on Thursday after he shared the process that went into him illegally signing autographs for profit while he was in college.

“This guy comes up behind me, he’s like, ‘Yo, how would you wanna make 3 grand?'” Johnny Maziel said on Barstool Sports’ “Bussin’ With The Boys” podcast via TMZ. “I turn around, I’m like, f*** yeah, bro!'”


Johnny Manziel says after that the ante was upped to $30,000 by another dude who randomly approached him.

“So, this guy’s pretty much, ‘All right, go to this room at the Fontainebleau. All this stuff will be in there laid out. When you’re done, just send me a picture of all of it. I’ll give you the code to the safe, the money will be in there,'” Johnny says.

Johnny Manziel claims that he never took a dime until after he won the Heisman Trophy following his Freshmen season in 2012.

The following year, Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies didn’t live up to their expectations. And Johnny Manziel isn’t overly concerned if the NCAA wants to take any of those wins away from him.

“We went 9-4 the next year, so if the NCAA wants to take my f***ing 9-4 season away, my Chick-Fil-A Bowl against Duke, f***ing blow me,” Manziel said.

Johnny Manziel might honestly love clout more than he loves money, and every time the guy opens his mouth he’s proving why he never could have made it as an NFL quarterback.
