Texas A&M Hires Same Law Firm That Kept Cam Newton Eligible

Johnny Manziel Drinking

If you are Texas A&M you just need to keep Johnny Football eligible for this year and then he can go to the NFL and be someone’s else problem.

Auburn was in the same position with Cam Newton and ended up winning a National Championship, so it makes sense A&M would hire the same people.

The same law firm that helped keep Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton eligible during the 2010 season at Auburn has been hired by Texas A&M to do the same with Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.

According to a person familiar with the matter, Texas A&M has retained Birmingham law firm Lightfoot, Franklin and White as legal counsel on the Manziel matter.
