According to Darren Rovell of ESPN, former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has signed a multi-year deal with Nike.
Johnny Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner and potential first overall pick in May’s NFL draft, informed the world’s largest shoe and apparel brand that it had won the sweepstakes to outfit his feet and use him in marketing campaigns, Nike spokesman KeJuan Wilkins confirmed Thursday night.
Financial terms were not disclosed, but sources told ESPN.com that it’s a multiyear deal that will be the highest price paid for a rookie in this year’s class. Manziel’s team negotiating the deal included LeBron James’ business manager, Maverick Carter, and Fenway Sports Group.
Whether Manziel turns out to be a great NFL quarterback or not he’s about to get paid by Nike.
