Cash Money Sports is officially in business — TMZ Sports has learned the agency has just signed its first high profile athlete … Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans.
Evans — considered one of the best players in the upcoming NFL Draft — had initially hired another agency to rep him … but we’re told Evans has now signed on the dotted line with Cash Money.
FYI — Cash Money is run by Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams — the brothers who built the Cash Money record empire … the home of Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Paris Hilton.
What’s interesting … Evans is tight with Johnny Manziel … who happens to be BFFs with Cash Money rapper Drake.
So, the question … will Johnny follow his wide receiver to Cash Money Sports?
The arrival of Cash Money Sports could set up a battle royale between CMS and Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports agency.
6:35 PM PT — Sources tell us … Cash Money Sports will be working with Priority Sports — the agency Evans initially signed with — in some capacity, but the details of the relationship are unclear.
