FORT MYERS, Fla. — Texas A&M quarterback and former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel put on a Red Sox jersey and watched this morning’s workout at Fenway South.
The jersey had No. 2, the number Manziel wore with the Aggies.
Manziel, who entered the NFL draft after his sophomore season, has a partnership with Fenway Sports Management to handle endorsements and sponsorships.
The association is via LeBron James and Maverick Carter. Their management firm, LRMR, is affiliated with Fenway Sports Management.
Manziel, Carter and an entourage of about a dozen watched the workout. On Friday night, Manziel attended a charity event at JetBlue Park and posed for photos with a few Red Sox players including Jackie Bradley Jr., Steven Wright and Alex Wilson.
Manziel, through one of his handlers, declined to answer questions from reporters.
