Johnny Manziel Says He’s Talking with NFL Teams About a Comeback
Johnny Manziel is looking to make a comeback this year. And while teams aren’t exactly beating his door down, apparently he is drawing more interest than Colin Kaepernick.
Speaking at a fantasy football convention in Dallas on Saturday, the former Heisman Trophy winner said he’s had “a couple of conversations with some teams” about a comeback. Whether those conversations happened on his moneyphone remains unclear.
“I think they are taking it slow, and so am I,” Manziel told Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “I know the situation that I put myself in. I know the year I took off and obviously the mistakes that I made. Right now, I’m hopeful. I’m really hopeful. I think that I made some progress in that regard. But we’ll see. Whenever I get a call, I’ll do whatever I can to make the most of it.”
In case you somehow forgot, Manziel spent just two mediocre seasons with the Cleveland Browns before flaming out, entering rehab, quitting rehab, getting dropped by his agent, and pleading guilty to domestic violence.
When asked if he’s learned anything in the last year, Manziel had this to say:

So who’s going to get a deal first? The guy who drank too much and beat up his girlfriend, or the guy who kneeled and donated $1 million to charity?
