The wild saga of former Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel took a sad turn on Wednesday.
That’s when ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that, for the first time since his exit from the NFL following the 2015 season, Johnny Manziel will hit the promotional tour in hopes of making some cash on autographs and pictures.
Manziel is slated to make two paid appearances in Texas shopping malls in the days leading up to Super Bowl 51, which is being hosted in Houston’s NRG Stadium.
According to the report, the former Heisman Trophy winner is charging for both his signature and his presence in a photograph, all the way down to selfies:
The price is $99 for any item signed, $99 to take a professional photo with Manziel and $50 for a selfie or any picture taken with a fan’s phone.
Manziel also will add inscriptions, including “Johnny Football,” for $29.
Cynthia Gaytan, who manages the Stadium Signatures stores that will feature Manziel, told Rovell that the business has received quite a bit of interest in the signing from a variety of football fans, ranging from Texas A&M supporters to Heisman Trophy memorabilia collectors.
