BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) _ ESPN says the NCAA is investigating whether Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was paid for signing hundreds of autographs in January.
Citing unidentified sources, ESPN's ``Outside the Lines'' said the Heisman Trophy winner signed items in exchange for a five-figure fee during his trip to Miami for the BCS championship game.
ESPN said sources told ``Outside the Lines'' that Manziel signed photographs, footballs, mini football helmets and other items at the request of autograph broker Drew Tieman.
ESPN reported that a source said James Garland, the NCAA's assistant director of enforcement, contacted Tieman and at least one person associated with the signings in June.
The NCAA and Texas A&M declined to comment Sunday night.
