Peterson: Manziel should get paid
By ESPN.com staff
Should the NCAA allow college football players such as Johnny Manziel to get paid? Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson thinks so.
Peterson told FOXSports.com on Thursday that Manziel and other players should be allowed to make money off their own name.
"I think so," Peterson told FOXSports.com. "The universities are making a lot of money off of student-athletes in general. 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."
