Although the Dallas Cowboys are very unlikely to even consider drafting Texas A&M quarterback, Johnny Manziel, he still met the other star in the state of Texas, Jerry Jones. That’s right. Johnny “Football” met Jerry “The Owner.”
According to Manziel, the meeting went fantastic and he was excited about meeting Jones for the very first time. Manziel has already let the press know that he will not be competing in throwing drills at the NFL Scouting Combine later this month. However, Manziel will still be competing in all the other events and continues to prepare in San Diego, California.
On meeting Jones, Manziel said:
“I got a chance to meet Jerry,” Manziel told the Telegram. “I didn’t know him. To get a chance to sit there and talk with him – the guy is an absolute football fanatic. I really enjoyed meeting him. Until my mouth was sore from talking, and my ear was tired from hearing all of it, we sat there in his suite at Cowboys Stadium and talked for hours. It was awesome to see how he really is, how passionate he is about everything. Me growing up as a Cowboys fan – I was born at halftime of a Cowboys game – that would almost be a folktale in the correct direction. We’d have to call that Johnny something else. I don’t know what it would be.”
It is quite obvious Manziel enjoyed his time with the Cowboys’ owner but both men have bigger things to worry about. Jones must pray his quarterback, Tony Romo, can make a full recovery and that the Cowboys are finally contenders in the NFC playoff picture, while Manziel will most likely have to help turn a franchise around.
Whether it will be Houston, Jacksonville, or possibly Cleveland, Manziel better be ready for the competition at the next level which is the National Football League.
