There has certainly been a lot of speculation that no matter what happens with the current NCAA investigation, 2013 will be Johnny Manziel's last season with Texas A&M. And the news that Manziel's parents are selling their College Station home certainly won't quiet that speculation.
According to Realtor.com the home that Manziel's parents bought in June 2011 in order to be closer to their son while he was at Texas A&M is currently on the market. The house is just 15 minutes away from the Texas A&M campus.
The house was originally listed on April 28 for $405,000 and is currently listed at $379,000. It has four bedrooms and fourth bathrooms and is 2,881 square feet. You can see all the details of the house here.
Now, odds are you're not very interested in the details of the house as much as what this might mean for Manziel's future as an Aggie. Whether or not he plays this season Manziel is eligible for the NFL Draft following the year. Players need to be three years removed from high school to enter the NFL Draft, and since Manziel redshirted his freshman year at Texas A&M this will be his third year at the school.

Manziel has been screwing up so much lately, that there is a 50-50 chance he won’t be playing this year. The NCAA investigation into him selling his autograph could put him on the sidelines.
In the NFL, he will be a great quarterback, but there’s no telling how long he will play before he does something so incredibly stupid that he not only loses his NFL gig, but he may find himself behind bars. He’s an arrogant kid who thinks that he can get away with anything . . . . . . . . and, so far, his behavior proves it.
How long until Johnny Football starts having real problems with Johnny Law....
Obviously his parents got lots of money. Some may be surprised that there are expensive houses in the small town of College Station, Texas. But $405,000 is no where near the top.
Like I said, his parents have money. It makes no sense for him to sell an autograph. This could have been started by an opponent. Say, oh, I don’t know, Saben?
the worst one is that he showed up (and got boo’d badly with a viral video to boot) at another university, Texas and at their frat party. Seriously. This kid skewered Alabama in that game but his social thinking requires help.
While he may or may not be having personal issues, one can’t dispute that throwing away his college career is not in itself a problem. Who cares about A&M and who cares about the NCAA? I’d would ditch it too for pro football dollars.
He’s 20 years old for God’s sakes. Most 20 year olds have the brains of a piss-ant. His behavior is completely age appropriate. Why are famous people denied the rights of anonymity? Unless he’s done something criminal, his behavior should be ignored.
He’s too short for the NFL.
Manziel is taller than Russell Wilson, Quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks (Manziel is listed as 6'1, Wilson is listed as 5'11 per Wikipedia). Folks said the same thing about Wilson as well. Wilson made the Pro Bowl as a rookie last year and projects to have an above average career for an NFL quarterback. Fran Tarkenton was short as well, but had a Hall of Fame career.
If Manziel's arm is strong enough and accurate and he runs smartly like Wilson does, then he may be able to have success in the NFL, like Wilson.
I forgot to also mention that Manziel is slightly taller than Drew Brees, Quarterback for the New Orleans Saints and likely future Hall of Famer. Manziel is 6’1, Brees is 6’, again per Wikipedia.
I don’t think that Manziel has the arm that Drew Brees has. I think that if Manziel does make it in the NFL, he will play more like Russell Wilson or RGIII of the Redskins than Brees.
According to reports by the DBM, two sports brokers have come forward and stated that they paid him to autograph a variety of material that they could sell. Based on this, the NCAA is investigating.
His ego was seen being transported from Austin to College Station on a blimp. The kid can read a defense and scramble 20 yards per gallup. I can still hear the cheers echo from Tivy Stadium ... just down the road.
If you were the head coach of a professional football team, would you want your quarterback to be someone who exhibits such erratic behavior?
Maybe he’s Bobby Layne reincarnated.
The kid has a rifle for an arm. He needs to grow up though. I understand the thinking that one should be entitled to profit from his own autograph. BUT, those aren;t the rules. He knew the rules and he foolishly broke them. He let his teammates down. Not stupid. Just immature. I hope he grows up and has a great NFL career.
