Johnny Manziel To Reportedly Throw Passes At University Of San Diego's Pro Day

Johnny Manziel plays in a Spring League game

It looks like one former controversial NFL quarterback isn't willing to give up the dream just yet...

According to Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman, Johnny Manziel will be the quarterback throwing passes to receivers during the Pro Day workouts at the University of San Diego on Thursday morning.

After a myriad of serious off-the-field problems, the Heisman winner appears to be refocused on giving his pro football career another shot - so the work out could be a great opportunity for Manziel to get some good looks from scouts.


Underclassmen can’t throw for pro day workouts so graduating prospects and former players are the typical players called upon to throw during the workouts if a quarterback isn’t a part of the school’s pro hopefuls.

While the 25-year-old signal caller is slated 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. The Spring League is a three-week scouting event in Austin, TX that consists of four teams that play two games apiece.

Manziel was recently in the news for another reason - he got married to model Bre Tiesi.

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