Texas A&M University has hired a law firm notorious for getting Heisman trophy winners out of trouble to represent Tyler native, Johnny Manziel.

The Aggies hired Birmingham, Alabama, law firm Lightfoot, Franklin and White as the quarterback's counsel.

The firm famously represented Auburn Heisman winner, Cam Newton in 2010 and kept his eligibility alive. Newton never sat any games.

Lightfoot has been hired in light of reports alleging Manziel was paid for his autographs on multiple occasions. If reports deem true, Manziel would be in violation of NCAA rules.
