Manziel said he befriended James when he was being investigated by the NCAA this summer for signing autographs for memorabilia brokers. Manziel told “The Dan Patrick Show” last month that the two would text each other every day during that time.

“Everyone was coming after me and there was so much criticism,” Manziel said. “I feel like LeBron deals with that every single day of his life.”

A source close to the negotiations over Manziel’s representation told that Manziel had always admired James’ off-the-court business empire. Manziel was seen sitting courtside with Carter for the team’s game against the Golden State Warriors last week.
