Embattled former NFL QB Johnny Manziel is back in the eyes of NFL scouts. The ex-Browns QB participated in the Univ. of San Diego’s pro day. Manziel has not been on an NFL roster since 2016 when he was a member of the Cleveland Browns. He has been a lightning rod for controversy during his tenuous NFL career. He’s been known more for his late-night partying than throwing touchdowns. Although, an interesting stat the last QB to win a game for the Cleveland Browns was the one and only Johnny Football. I don’t know who that says more about?
Manziel was granted permission by the Univ. of San Diego to participate in their pro day to showcase his comeback skills. By all accounts, it seemed to have gone pretty well.
Johnny Football might have finally cleaned up his act after what seemed like endless promises to enter rehab for his drinking and drug use. During this whole comeback process, he has coined the term #ComebackSZN for his new revamped image.
Manziel has been working to get back into playing shape with QB guru George Whitfield, Jr. and also is scheduled to play in the inaugural Spring League coming in April. The Spring League is a new developmental league for scouting purposes to get players a foot in the door with the NFL. Fringe ex-college players who didn’t quite make the cut and former NFL players who have lost their way will be the participants in the league. Manziel was also recently spotted working out with top NFL draft prospect Saquon Barkley. If there is anyone right now to be spotted with for good PR purposes, it’s Barkley. He has become the belle of the ball during this NFL offseason thus far.
Johnny looks like he’s ready #ComebackSZN and I know damn well I am too.
