Johnny Manziel signs with LRMR and Select Sports Group.

Johnny Manziel has an agent and a marketing firm, and no, Drake is not involved with wither one of them. The former Texas A&M Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback has signed to LRMR, the management firm founded by LeBron James' longtime associate Maverick Carter. The company will reportedly handle marketing and other non-football related endeavors for Manziel.

Manziel had already signed a deal with Select Sports Group to represent him in regards to football-related matters. SSG's Erik Burkhardt will be Manziel's agent, with Bradley Beckworth and Jeffrey Angelovich handling his business affairs.

SSG also represents Minnesota Vikings QB Josh Freeman, and Houston Texans QB Case Keenym. That could be awkward as The Texans have the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, and Manziel's name has come up as being the players the team might select.
