Johnny Manziel was the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy during his time at Texas A&M before being drafted by the Cleveland Browns, and it was a pretty sweet ride up until that point. Unfortunately, Manzeil succumbed to the curse that comes with being the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns and was eventually banished from the NFL after he was suspended for four-games for issues off the field.
Manziel eventually admitted he was kind of an asshole in the past and it appeared he was poised to make a return to football by playing in the CFL. However, he was unable to reach an agreement before the deadline for the contract. He’s been touting his #ComebackSZN by training with Odell Beckham Jr., showing off his arm during training sessions, and even launching his own line of clothing that contains one of the best hats you’ll ever lay your eyes on.
Now, it looks like there’s a possibility of the Denver Broncos swooping in to save Manziel from the fate of having to play games in Saskatchewan. According to Larry Brown Sports, a scout from the Broncos was in attendance while Manziel played the role of quarterback during a pro day at San Diego State University, and the team representative was reportedly there to focus on his performance.
In the moral opposite of the Tim Tebow experiment, Manzeil would be competing with Case Keenum—who just signed a two-year, $36 million contract— for the starting job,
Good luck with that.
