The announcement was made by athlete autograph company Crave The Auto on Tuesday -- Johnny Manziel will have an autograph signing session in two memorabilia shops at malls during the Super Bowl week in Houston, Texas next month. Manziel, who previously played for Texas A&M as a quarterback, will be spotted at the mall in Katy on February 2nd, and in Woodland on February 3rd.

Cost of promotional session

Manziel's session will cost fans $99 for any signed item, $99 for a professional photo, and $50 for a selfie taken by fans via mobile smartphone. Additionally, the former quarterback of the Cleveland Browns will incorporate a "Johnny Manziel" inscription for $29.

There are a variety of audiences who are interested in interacting with the 2014 Heisman Trophy winner at the stores, according to store manager Cynthia Gayton. She told ESPN that she received calls from younger fans, as well as A&M fans and Heisman Trophy collectors.
Prior to this upcoming appearance, the last time Manziel hosted a public autograph signing session was at Aggieland Outfitters in College Station, where he met and greeted fans in 2015. More than 200 tickets were sold at the range of $125 to $155 a piece.

Manziel's off-the-field dealings

The former first round draft pick faced several off-field issues, such as a domestic violence case and alcohol abuse, which resulted in suspension and led to the Browns' decision to release Manziel prior to the start of the 2016 season.

Since then, the free agent has not signed a contract or played with a team.

Eventually, Manziel's marketing agency, as well as sports agent Erik Burkhardt terminated their business relationship with him. Nike also ceased an endorsement deal with Manziel. Simultaneously, they, as supporters, hoped that Manziel would get some assistance to clear up his personal issues off the field.

Last month, Manziel accepted an agreement with the Dallas County district attorney's office that domestic violence charges against him will be dropped should he receive treatment or counseling over the course of the next year. As of September 2016, when Manziel was unable to obtain a deal from an NFL franchise, he returned to classes online at the university to pursue his education.
