The Dallas Cowboys > the Cleveland Browns. How so? Well, only in a 900+ word article about Jim Nantz and the Browns does the following quote about Dallas, Johnny Manziel and the NFL Draft make the big splash.
“I can say this, he’s going to be the guy everyone wants to see. I’ve heard this rumor for a month — the Cowboys will figure out a way to get Manziel. Wherever Manziel goes, there is going to be more clamoring about Johnny Manziel than there would be about Blake Bortles going No. 1 or (Jadeveon) Clowney going No. 1, or anyone else. This is a guy that there’s just a tremendous interest in everything he does.”
This isn’t the first news to come out about Jerry Jones loving Manziel. Both Ed Werder and Mike Freeman have shared that the Cowboys will select Manziel if he falls to them.

Just texted scout to see if he believed Cowboys would take Manziel if Manziel was there. Scout: “Of course he would.” Oh boy.

Already one of the most discussed teams in the league, the selection of Manziel would lodge Dallas atop the headlines for at least the next three seasons – a point echoed by Nantz when discussing the quarterback’s star power.
“If the Browns take him, the interest in the Cleveland Browns nationally — and that’s true for any team – is going be just off the charts. The Cleveland opener in Pittsburgh is going to be the most talked about game Week 1 if Johnny Manziel is the quarterback.”
So if you’re the Cleveland Browns, want relevancy for a reason other than rolling through coaches and management, and want to keep teams such as the Cowboys from jacking your headlines, there seems to be one slam-dunk remedy.
Johnny Manziel helped restore the Texas A&M Aggies back to the forefront of the college football landscape through his extremely exciting style of play. Watch how they do next year with another player leading the offense by getting your Texas A&M football tickets today!
