Johnny Manziel he has spoken with multiple NFL teams about a comeback

Who lands a job first, Johnny Manziel or Colin Kaepernick?

We’ve spoken plenty about one notable free agent quarterback, but another notable name is still looking for a job. Back in March, we learned that Johnny Manziel had chatted with Sean Payton during Super Bowl week. Things have been quiet since, but this weekend, Manziel said that he has had a couple conversations about a potential comeback.

Manziel sat out last season amidst a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. The Browns released him and he did not land a job once his suspension ended. As PFT pointed out, he has stayed out of the news for the most part since then as he looks for another opportunity.

I have made it pretty clear that I don’t expect Colin Kaepernick to get another chance in the NFL. On the other hand, what about Manziel? It remains to be seen who if any teams he has actually spoken to, but if he stays out of trouble, could we see someone take a flier on him? Given his history, it’d be plenty amusing to see him back in the NFL before Kaepernick, but anything is possible at this point. Who lands a job first?
