The Dallas Cowboys [VIDEO] were planning to draft Manziel in the first round but Stephen Jones convinced his dad Jerry Jones [VIDEO] to pass on the quarterback and they drafted offensive guard Zack Martin instead.

Manziel has become something of a reclamation project after flaming out with the Cleveland Browns, who drafted him 22nd overall in the 2014 NFL Draft. Things went downhill and he only started eight games in his two seasons in the #NFL.

"According to a source, the Patriots spoke with Manziel both before the workout, as well as after the session". He wasn't effective on the field during his two-year Browns run, accumulating 1,675 passing yards, seven touchdowns, seven interceptions, 259 rushing yards and a rushing score. Manziel told TMZ earlier this month that he would go to New England "in a heartbeat" to serve as Tom Brady's backup, and given the Patriots have taken a look at him twice this offseason, they appear to be somewhat interest in possibly adding him to their quarterback depth chart behind Brady and backup Brian Hoyer.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, New England was not alone in their courting of Manziel following Texas A&M's Pro Day.

Former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel will make his debut in the developmental Spring League on April 7. "One said he even looked better than he did in 2014".

That is the big deal here.

Manziel hasn't taken an National Football League snap since 2015. He bombed out because of an attitude problem that led to off-field distractions.

Manziel was not the only player working out at Texas A&M's pro day, as wide receiver Christian Kirk was among the other players who participated in the workout.
