Johnny Manziel discusses future during Texas A&M’s pro day
Johnny Manziel laid out his path toward returning to pro football after taking part in Texas A&M’s pro day on Tuesday.
If nothing pops up, then I’m going to play in the CFL, Manziel told reporters after he made some passes in front of representatives from all 32 NFL teams.
Manziel, a former Heisman Trophy winner, had been in talks to join the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats earlier this year, although no deal was finalized. His appearance at his alma mater’s pro day on Tuesday follows his participation at the University of San Diego’s pro day last week.
Of course. Do I drop Dexter Fowler or Garrett Richards Nope. I do make an exception for new closers because something is always changing there, and already it appears that our Blake Parker investments have gone awry. But with most others, not so much. Go ahead and add Seattle’s Felix Hernandez, but we have myriad reasons that he should be avoided, and one decent outing on Opening Day just does not alter that for me.
AJ Mass: Simply put, I don’t. OK, sure, if I’ve got Delino DeShields in my lineup and he fractures a hamate bone, I’m going to make a move. But other than injury-related moves, I’m letting the status quo ride for the first month of the season. For one thing, it will take a few weeks — especially in rotisserie formats — to know exactly in which statistical area your team needs improvement. What’s the point in using your waiver priority on a free agent who’s all big bat and no legs if, come May 1, you’re in first place in home runs by double digits and last in steals
Patrick told The Post he recently made the decision. He said that NBC offered him a new, five-year-deal in December, but, at 61, he said he did not want to make a commitment.
I didn’t want to do it and not love doing it, Patrick said.
Patrick does want to continue his radio show and is on the verge of renewing with AT&T and DirecTV for the next three years, he said.
Patrick had been doing NBC’s pregame for the last nine years and co-hosted the Super Bowl four times.
His contract with NBC Sports Network is a licensing agreement for the simulcast of his radio show. It still could continue even though he will not be on Sunday night.
Mike Tirico is the leading candidate to be the main host on the pregame.
