Johnny Manziel Reportedly Met With This NFL Team Tuesday

On Tuesday, Johnny Manziel participated in another pro day workout, and this time it was for his alma mater Texas A&M with the eyes of an NFL dynasty on him.

According to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald, the Patriots met with the former Browns QB before and after his throwing session with the Aggies. Manziel threw to both receivers and running backs, including Christian Kirk, who is a projected first-round pick.

Last Thursday, Manziel participated in a pro day workout at the University of San Diego. Representatives from 13 teams were present last week, including New England's area scout.

After a multitude of serious off-the-field problems, the Heisman winner appears to be focused on revitalizing his pro football career and Bill Belichick hasn't shied away from taking a flyer on troubled players in the past - as long as the price is right.

But not everyone is buying that argument.

While it remains a long shot, the best outcome for Manziel would be getting an invite to camp if a team is in need of a third or fourth string signal caller.

Manziel has another opportunity for exposure coming up as the 25-year-old signal caller is set to play in The Spring League in early April. His deal does have an out-clause if he were to get signed by an NFL team. However, Manziel would have to sign before the start of the development league in order to have his contract voided - a timeframe that seems unlikely at this point.

Manziel last played in the NFL for Browns back in December of 2015.
