Former Texas A&M star quarterback Johnny Manziel has spoken to multiple teams about a return to the NFL according to Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News

He added, "I think that I made some progress in that regard".

Manziel, the Heisman-winning, football-slinging wunderkind who rocketed straight to the top of the nation's sports consciousness-and straight out of a job after just 15 games in the NFL-has fallen into something of a predictable routine: get caught on social media doing something stupid, then claim that he still wants an NFL job.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy victor has not played since 2015 when the Cleveland Browns gave up on the 2014 first-round draft pick after just two seasons. He was seen throwing back in February, and a possible comeback seemed centered on the CFL as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats hold his rights.

"Whenever I get the call, I'll do whatever I can to make the most of it".

Manziel made headlines a year ago after he was spotted across the country partying - including one instance in Las Vegas where Manziel appeared to look shockingly thin - despite insisting he was preparing a return to the NFL.

If a team opts to sign Manziel over Kaepernick, the league's hypocrisy would only be heightened for supporting a player with multiple assaults and drug related incidents over someone such as Kaepernick.

It's clear that Manziel has missed the game during his time away.

"It is hard. This is all that I have known for so long".

The former Texas A&M Heisman Trophy victor was a first round pick of the Browns in 2014. "It's what I love to do", he said.

"When I get my chance, I will do whatever it takes to seize it", he assured.

"A ton", Manziel said at the convention when asked how much he misses football, according to Machota. He completed only 57 percent of his passes for 1,675 yards and seven touchdowns.

Former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is still holding out hope for a return to the NFL. Teams would have to be able to count on both Manziel behaving himself and playing at an National Football League level, as well as being able to embrace the additional attention and coverage that would come with having him on the roster.
