Johnny Manziel has done a lot of thinking about his future recently, and asked some big-time personalities for advice, and it appears that he has come up with an answer for his football future: he needs to be in the NFL next season. Yesterday, ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that Johnny has selected Maverick Carter, LeBron’s business partner, and Select Sports Group, to represent him when he turns pro. Today, per NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt, Manziel has officially submitted his NFL Draft declaration papers:
To be clear, Manziel has officially submitted declaration papers to #NFL for inclusing in 2014 draft, part of record 80 underclassmen.
