07:35 AM ET 12.14 | A report recently surfaced that Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel will sign with Select Sports Group, a Houston-based sports agency. Doing so would result in a forfeiture of Manziel's remaining eligibility to play college football. Reached for confirmation of the report, agent Erik Burkhardt of Select Sports Group denied not only that Manziel plans to sign with the firm but that the firm has talked to Manziel. Having contact with Manziel would not constitute a violation of NFLPA rules. "It's simply false," Burkhardt told PFT regarding the report. "Nobody in our firm has ever spoken to Johnny. But if you can up to him, tell him I think he's a hell of a player and should win the Heisman."

The ultimate source of the "Manziel will sign" rumor is Darren Heitner who has a reputation for tweeting stuff that he later recants. IDarren Heitner, who you crappin'.) The whole thing here is a tissue anyway because "will sign" does mean "has signed." Complete junk.

Heisman Trophy or the Heisman), is awarded annually to the most outstanding player in college football in the United States whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity.

That "integrity" would seem to eliminate Manziel.

Well, you like your rumors to be plausible, if not substantial. Darren Heitner-generated info isn't worth the ether it passes through.
