New England Patriots meeting with Johnny Manziel

Johnny Manziel

"The Patriots were in attendance at Texas A&M's pro day today at the team's indoor practice facility".

Former NFL QB Johnny Manziel held a workout on Thursday in San Diego with NFL team scouts present. He impressed enough that a contingency from the New England Patriots met with him before and after the session.

In two years in the NFL, Manziel started eight games and went 2-6, compiling 1,675 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. Still, it is noteworthy that the Patriots appear to have interest in Manziel. With Tom Brady's former backups Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett in San Francisco and Indianapolis, respectively, and veteran journeyman Brian Hoyer listed as second on the depth chart, bringing in a third option to ignite a backup quarterback competition may not be out of the question.

Could New England be a realistic landing spot for Johnny Manziel? However, he was also there to try to prove to the National Football League that he could still throw the ball and try to get a second chance.

NFL.com reported that one NFL scout said that Johnny Manziel looked better than he did throwing the ball than he did four years ago when he was throwing to try out for his own shot at the NFL Draft.

That is the big deal here.

Manziel won the Heisman as a freshman with Texas A&M in 2012 and left school after his sophomore season for the NFL. He bombed out because of an attitude problem that led to off-field distractions.

Manziel was not the only player working out at Texas A&M's pro day, as wide receiver Christian Kirk was among the other players who participated in the workout. "I can't do anything, I can't stress about it, all I can do is make sure I'm where I need to be".
