One day after being hired by the family, Johnny Manziel’s attorney says the NCAA investigation into whether the Texas A&M quarterback took money for signing autographs is” not going to be a short process.”
Referring to an alleged transfer of money between autograph brokers, attorney Jim Darnell says “I haven’t seen anything” to support specific allegations reported by ESPN over the weekend.
“You’ve seen a lot of the same stuff on TV that I have and that seems to be the big thing everybody’s talking about. (But) they’ve got an awful lot of pictures out there, not to have taken a picture of that.”
Darnell predicted again he expects Manziel to take the field when the Aggies open against Rice. “That’s what we’re figuring.”
