Report: Johnny Manziel chooses agency to represent him

While Johnny Manziel has yet to declare for the NFL draft and instead says he still needs to talk about it with his family, the news report Tuesday from ESPN.com seems pretty clear about what Manziel's future intentions will be.

LeBron, of course, is LeBron James, and SSG stands for Select Sports Group -- which, according to Sports Agent Blog, had eight players it signed drafted in 2012 (that included Geno Smith, who dropped to the second round and subsequently left the agency).

Included on that list from the 2012 draft is Raiders cornerback D.J. Hayden, who was selected No. 12 overall.

Last month, Rotoworld reported that the Texas A&M star quarterback would sign with SSG, but the group denied making contact with Manziel.

That doesn't seem to matter anymore, nor does it much matter that Manziel told ESPN on Monday that "I want to make the right decision that's best for me and my family."

It sounds like the decision has been made and that Manziel is moving forward to the NFL draft. Where, according to our NFLDraftScout.com colleagues, Manziel would land either in Cleveland with the No. 4 overall pick or in Oakland at No. 5.
