Johnny "Football" Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner, might not be allowed to play for Texas A&M this season because he signed a bunch of autographs for money.

Adrian Peterson says it's time to let NCAA athletes profit off their own names.

“The universities are making a lot of money off of student athletes in general," Peterson told FOX on Thursday. "So, yeah he should be able to make money. I think so. They make millions off of these college athletes and they made millions off of the guys I played with as well. Yeah, he should be getting paid.”
