With a big payday imminent, Johnny Manziel treated some of his Texas A&M supporters to drinks on him.
According to The Dallas Morning News' Kate Hairopoulos, Manziel footed the bill for everyone of drinking age at his favorite bar in College Station. Each person received a Miller Lite and a Fireball shot.
Of the 250 people who showed up at the draft party, about 122 people received drinks on behalf of Manziel.
The plan was put in place last week. Manziel left his credit card number at the bar, and he planned to drop around $2,000—because of his No. 2 jersey—on drinks for his fans.
Originally, Manziel was supposed to FaceTime the bar to celebrate with the fans. However, he didn't end up doing that after he had to wait longer than expected to hear his name called.
Speaking of the former Aggies star's draft slide, there was also a raffle with Manziel-signed prizes that had fans guess where the quarterback would be picked. It wasn't reported on whether anyone in the bar had him sliding all the way down to No. 22.
By the end of the night, the bar had reason to celebrate.
