What sounded like the impossible a few short months ago is getting closer to reality. Johnny Manziel the former Heisman trophy winner as a freshman at Texas A&M has drawn repeated interest from the New England Patriots. Manziel has had many off field issues since coming into the league and has been out of the NFL for two seasons now. Manziel is claiming to be a changed man and is looking for a second opportunity. Johnny clearly has a strong desire to play for the Patriots and now the Patriots are starting to show interest in him. The Patriots clearly need an eventual replacement for Brady and they can probably sign Manziel dirt cheap at the moment because of his past transgressions. Don’t be surprised if the Patriots take a calculated risk on Johnny football.
The Patriots met with Johnny Manziel both before and after his workout today, according to @kguregian.
