Report: Manziel being investigated by NCAA

Posted: Updated:

 Controversy continues to find Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel.
  ESPN says the NCAA is investigating whether the Texas A&M quarterback was paid for signing hundreds of autographs in January.
  Citing unidentified sources, ESPN's "Outside the Lines" said Manziel signed items in exchange for a five-figure fee during his trip to Miami for the BCS championship game.
  Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin says the university is currently gathering the facts about the accusation.

 If Manziel was paid for the autographs, it could put his eligibility in question.
 Sumlin said he would not speculate whether Manziel will be his starter when the season begins Aug. 31 against Rice.
