Show us your tweets: Johnny Football edition

Posted 11:54am on Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013

Johnny Football, aka Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, has been making headlines lately because of ESPN reports that, in a possible violation of NCAA by-laws, he has participated in at least six sessions in which he signed more than 4,400 items for autograph dealers. He has also generated a lot of tweets.

@kylemathewson Wait. Texas A&M can make $37 million from Johnny football winning the heisman but he cant make a dime from signing an autograph? Smh.

@Kevin_Connelly I completely forgot how epic this Texas A&M vs Alabama game was last year. Johnny Football can sign whatever, I just wanna see him play QB.

@Choppa_Style11 Johnny Football is rich already and will be even more rich when he is in the NFL. Why does he need extra money for signing autographs?

@Stew_Pot ESPN be like "Lebron, RG3, Johnny Football, preseason, preseason, preseason, preseason, lebron, preseason, preseason, 5 minutes of baseball"

@theGREATdane7 All I know is that if my signature was worth as much a Johnny football's I'd sign stuff too. It's human nature

@HolsVols Football season hasn't even started and I already want to scream at the mention of the name Johnny Football. Move on People! #getoverit
