CLEVELAND (AP) — One of the jerseys Johnny Manziel wore during his Heisman Trophy-winning season at Texas A&M will be auctioned off this week.
The No. 2 jersey, with an estimated value of $100,000, was worn for six games in 2012 by Manziel, the dazzling quarterback who became the first freshman to win college football’s most prestigious award. It will be up for auction online starting on Aug. 6 through the National Sports Collectors Convention.
Manziel is in his first NFL training camp with the Browns. He’s battling Brian Hoyer to win Cleveland’s starting job.
The Browns selected Manziel with the No. 22 overall pick in May’s draft.
Manziel’s arrival in Cleveland has heightened interest in the Browns, who have been drawing large crowds to their training camp.
