Manziel seems to be the talk of the NFL thanks to the upcoming draft season and his soon release from the Browns.

Even though Manziel was recently seen partying in the Dallas area, Jerry Jones is still expressing major interest in the troublesome quarterback.

I really felt that Romo had more time than… At that particular time, for a first-round pick, I thought that Romo had more time. And if we sat there and worked with Manziel for four or five years, now we all know what’s happened.”
“We know the off-the-field issues. But on our board, one of our top five or six picks dropped down to us, it was at the quarterback position. And I absolutely was a vote of one in that room to basically go there. And I understood why. I understood the risk that was involved and we got a great player instead.
