Select Sports Group denies contact with Manziel


A report recently surfaced that Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel will sign with Select Sports Group, a Houston-based sports agency.  Doing so would result in a forfeiture of Manziel’s remaining eligibility to play college football.

Reached for confirmation of the report, agent Erik Burkhardt of Select Sports Group denied not only that Manziel plans to sign with the firm but that the firm has talked to Manziel.

Having contact with Manziel would not constitute a violation of NFLPA rules.

“It’s simply false,” Burkhardt told PFT regarding the report.  “Nobody in our firm has ever spoken to Johnny.  But if you can up to him, tell him I think he’s a hell of a player and should win the Heisman.”

On Saturday night, Manziel will find out whether he has won the Heisman.  On Friday, Manziel suggested in an interview with Dan Patrick that Manziel would consider staying in school if he will not be a first-round draft pick.

    I’ll bet, though Sumlin appreciates his talent, he can’t wait for this kid to leave.

    j-money sure would look good in an eagles uniform…..but 1) he’s immature 2) not yet ready for the NFL 3)would still back up nick foles for a couple of years. Best scenario for him would be to go to a QB needy team with a hard coach. Schiano would be good but he’s probably gonna stick with glennon so i would say the RAMS if they give up on Bradford.

    He probably signed with SSG a couple of years ago. They were the ones lining up those autograph for cash sessions.
