NEW YORK - While the NCAA investigates a report that Johnny Manziel accepted a "five-figure flat fee" with an autograph broker for signing memorabilia, ESPN reported another broker paid Manziel cash for signing approximately 300 mini and regular-sized helmets on Jan. 11.

The latest claims Manziel was paid $7,500 while signing memorabilia on Jan. 11-12 while attending the Walter Camp Football Foundation in New Haven, Conn.

ESPN has connected three autograph brokers to Manziel. The first, Drew Tieman, is based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and allegedly met with Manziel the day before the BCS title game to purchase autographs. The identities of the second, who is based in Alabama and claims to have met with Manziel the night before the Texas A&M vs. Alabama game in November, and the third are not known.
