According to WFAA, the Dallas Cowboys will not pursue Johnny Manziel when he becomes available in March. Reporter Mike Leslie says the team will not sign the troubled quarterback, because of his recent domestic violence allegations.
The Cowboys have been linked Manziel, because of owner Jerry Jones’ love for the former Texas A&M Aggies player. But, according to the story, they’re high-level Cowboys source said “Dallas is out on Manziel after the latest reports involving the quarterback and domestic violence allegations.”
The same source, WFAA is reporting, that he doubted that Dallas would pursue Manziel when he becomes available. When the Cleveland Browns get increased salary cap space, they’re going to release the troubled player in March.
Jones has made it no secret that he’s been interest in Manziel dating back to when he was looking to be drafted in the 2014 NFL Draft. The team could have drafted him with the 16th overall pick, but had to be talked out of selecting him by others in his war room, according to multiple previous reports.
Instead of selecting Manziel, the Cowboys selected center Zack Martin, who has been selected to the past two Pro Bowls.
While the team needs a back-up quarterback — Matt Cassel is a free agent and may not return — the team would likely select Robert Griffin III, who is expected to be released by the Washington Redskins. If they don’t sign a back-up, the team can elect to draft a top young quarterback in Carson Wentz or Paxton Lynch as Jared Goff is expected to be off-the-board by that point.
Goff is expected to be selected with the 2nd overall pick by the Browns, as they go with him as their future quarterback, which Manziel was supposed to be when he was drafted.
