Johnny Manziel has officially moved on from Texas A&M and is preparing for life in the NFL, but that isn’t going to stop him from showing allegiance to the Aggies. Manziel signed an endorsement deal with Nike earlier this month, which probably helps explain why he recently showed off a new pair of Oregon-themed sneakers on Instagram.
As many of you know, Nike founder and chairman Phil Knight attended Oregon. It’s the reason they get more than half a dozen insane new uniforms throughout the course of a season. Still, Manziel had enough loyalty to have “Johnny Football” and the Texas A&M logo stitched inside the tongue of his new kicks. What a guy.
As OregonLive.com also reminded us, Manziel and Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota have been friends since they were both being recruited by the Ducks in 2010. If Manziel starts getting shoes with Alabama logos on them, Aggies fans can go nuts.
