More money for Manziel

Reuters

The Browns were alarmed by Johnny Manziel’s offseason, off-field endeavors.  Advertisers apparently aren’t, which allows Manziel to make the money sign, repeatedly.

With the help of the management firm owned by LeBron James and Maverick Carter, Manziel has racked up another endorsement.  Which will yield more dollars that can either be deposited in the bank or rolled up tightly for reasons neither known nor apparent and not at all suspicious.  (The NBC Legal Department approves of this message.)

Via SportsBusiness Daily, MusclePharm has signed Manziel to a multi-year endorsement deal.  Other NFL players who do business with that specific company include Jets receiver Eric Decker and 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

“Manziel is an electrifying athlete and a proven winner with a rare and dynamic athleticism,” MusclePharm CEO and founder Brad Pyatt said.  “His work ethic combined with his relentless competitive drive make him an ideal fit for the MusclePharm brand. We are excited for the future.”

For Manziel, it’s the latest addition to a portfolio that includes Nike, McDonald’s, Nissan, and Snickers.  And he’s still not officially the starting quarterback of his team.

  1. He’s going to need it bc retirement is close. Browns got the worse qb ever in NFL history. Oh wait, Manziel’s already a back to future HOF.

  2. Nothing helps an entitled, immature person with a bad attitude like a pile of money. What could go wrong?

  3. He’s going to need it bc retirement is close. Browns got the worse qb ever in NFL history. He’s a money grabber but a worse on and off field loser. Oh wait, Manziel’s already a back to future HOF.

  4. “Manziel is an electrifying athlete and a proven winner with a rare and dynamic athleticism,” 

    I remember when Tebow was described with similar words.

  5. Losing neutrality on this guy fast. About ready to go firmly ‘against’ on him.

    Bad football news =/= good financial news. This guy had better start looking like he deserves his job, soon.

  6. Well, it looks like the NFL & The Factory of Sadness just got a Justin Bieber of their very own…

    Not a lot of talent, but in the headlines every day anyway.

    Cleveland’s fans deserved better.

  7. Tebow may have worked harder, but it didn’t matter…he couldn’t make standard NFL throws. JFF can at least make all the necessary throws…I hope he tears it up and shuts everyone up.

  8. Old and middle aged people just hate on manziel cus they wish they were him, live the life he’s livin and get the girls hes getting. if i had millions of dollars I’d be doing the same same stuff. Mabey not blowin lines in a bathroom for obvious reasons. And if ur not old and middle aged but are still talkin trash about him ur just a hater lol

  9. This guy dismantled Nick Saban’s stacked team in Alabama. Didn’t do it by himself, but he won’t be by himself on the Browns either. Personally I think he gets off playing mind games with the media and is probably working his butt off. My money says he lights it up at some point.

  10. I’m a Browns fan and usually, I love seeing Browns coverage on NFL Network because in years passed there hasn’t been much to talk about unless it’s around draft time. That said, even I’m getting sick of all this Manziel talk. I know it comes with the territory after drafting him, but holy crap…”coming up on NFL Network, Manziel photographed taking a drink from a water fountain? “What was in the fountain? Possibly water, possibly vodka…we’ll answer the question after Mike Lombardi’s triumphant return to the Network.”

  11. I understand they’re paying him in un-marked bills, rolled up like a cigarette so he doesn’t wear his hands out on something non-football-related.

  12. All this talk about Manziel being a bust before he even takes a snap…can we please wait to see what he does before rushing to judgement?? Be honest now…in August of 2001, how many of us would have said – especially after seeing Tom Brady’s shirtless combine photograph and seeing him run the 40 – that he would lead the Pats to the Super Bowl that year, win several more championships and be among the best QB’s in the league…ever. Finding an elite QB in the NFL Draft is a crap shoot and no one…ever…knows for sure what they have in a QB until he actually gets a shot and takes snaps. If he falls on his face, chirp away – he deserves it. But if he lights it up, I imagine it’ll be very hard for a lot of people making these comments to say they were wrong.

  13. @bc’s kraken… Amen to that. Let’s see what he’s got… but have to admit, the media doesn’t make up his childish antics. He makes it easy to root against him.

    Highly doubtful he’ll live up to the current hype and swagger… but maybe he’ll learn some humility sooner than later… after a few NFL hits and ‘runs for his life’.

  14. “His party ethic combined with his relentless competitive drive to make each edition of TMZ make him an ideal fit for the MusclePharm brand.”

  15. …and these endorsements will fall like flies when he’s busted with his first arrest. It’s only a matter of time with this fool.

  16. Enough with the “Cleveland Browns are alarmed”. Manziel was exactly the same in college so the story line that everyone is “alarmed” by his behaviour should have been “alarmed” when they drafted him.

    They weren’t “alarmed” when his jersey flew off the shelves and they aren’t “alarmed” by his practice habits”.

  17. Will be seeing his debut this saturday at ford field. Really dont care about all this off field stuff but im interested / excited to see him actually, you know, play the game of football.

  18. “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.”

    I’ll wait until the end of the year to judge this kid. I’m hoping he does well but “earns” his snaps.

  19. All I ask is that his name be prominently displayed on whatever he is selling so I can easily avoid all of it. Guy is already a disgrace.

  20. What an asinine comment I quote below…

    “Old and middle aged people just hate on manziel cus they wish they were him, live the life he’s livin and get the girls hes getting. if i had millions of dollars I’d be doing the same same stuff. Mabey not blowin lines in a bathroom for obvious reasons. And if ur not old and middle aged but are still talkin trash about him ur just a hater lol”

    Actually he’s not living the life. Having fun is one thing, but constant revelry is a chain, not freedom.

    Getting the girls he gets? You mean the average chicks you see that have bodies that almost shouldn’t be in bikini’s? I see Manziel hanging out with uggos, I’m not jealous of anything, I think he’s got poor taste and low standards given the quality of talent he never goes home with. Seriously, how can he be at all these parties with tons of beautiful women and go home with the average at best crowd.

    If you had millions of dollars with your attitude, you wouldn’t have it long.

    So being aware of reality, unlike the fantasy you wish to live and almost seem like vicariously are living through him is hating? No sorry. Some people like to party, but know it ain’t nothing in the grand scheme of things.

    A person who thinks partying is the end all be all, is one sick person who is going to have a hell of a time trying to live, and yes, such devotion to nothing will end badly, like is does to almost everyone else in the same position.

  21. I wish you guys wouldn’t show that picture. Every time I see it or some other variation of it, I get annoyed. I don’t have anything against him, but man, he’s like the Justin Bieber of the NFL.

  22. I know if I ran a company called “Musclepharm” that the first person that I would go after as a sponser would be a guy who is already shilling for McDonalds’ burgers and Snickers bars.

  23. another day, another story from the same writer on this spoiled silver spooned brat. When is this site gonna’ realize there’s thousands of other players in the NFL that we was fans might want to read about !

    You’re right, it’s a crap shoot, but Brady wasn’t drafted because of what he did in the combine. Neither was Manziel.

    And who even heard of Tom Brady prior to Bledsoe getting injured? He kept a low profile, as do most newbies in the NFL.

    Manziel loves himself, and based on what everyone has seen so far, it’s hard to take him seriously. Tom Brady hasn’t been in the news in the off season because he’s too busy working and practicing. Manziel is partying with Justin Bieber…

  25. With the poor offensive line the Browns ended up with, BOTH Hoyer and Johnny Football are gonna play AND so will the 3rd and 4th stringers they will have to bring in.
