Johnny Manziel already has a big endorsement deal
Nike signed Manziel with help from Maverick Carter, LeBron James' business manager, and Fenway Sports Group, which owns the Red Sox and Liverpool Football Club.
In addition to Manziel, Nike has endorsement deals with Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers.
This is the first of likely many endorsement deals that Manziel will sign as an NFL player. He has been paving the way for "Johnny Football" merchandise for years, and now that he's out from under the clutches of the NCAA, he'll be able to profit off of it.
