Texas A&M is being extra cautious when giving fans autographs.

In a statement released Wednesday, the Aggies announced that players and coaches will not sign any memorabilia for fans attending the "Meet the Aggies" event Aug. 24.

Instead, the only autographs allowed will be on specially provided autograph cards, "in order to accommodate as many fans as possible." All other items must be left at the door.

"No other items -- for example, helmets, footballs, jerseys and photos -- will be allowed in the Gilliam Indoor Track Complex," the statement said.

The new policy comes in light of an NCAA investigation into whether Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was paid to sign memorabilia.

Texas A&M also said players and coaches would remain seated at the event and would not pose for photos.
