Johnny Manziel appears to have his sights set on a return to the NFL.
According to TMZ, Manziel, who left the game of football after a string on personal issues, is “dead serious” about making an NFL comeback and has hit the gym in hopes of getting another shot in the league. Could the Miami Dolphins be a potential landing spot for the embattled quarterback?
If the 24-year-old can stay sober and show he has made drastic strides in changing his personal life and his image, it is possible that a team or two could consider adding Manziel to its roster. Though no reports have indicated that Miami would have even preliminary interest in “Johnny Football,” it is conceivable that the Dolphins could take him on as a cheap, high-upside backup.
Matt Moore is entrenched as the franchise’s backup quarterback, at least for the near future, and Ryan Tannehill seems poised to remain the starter, so it is hard to envision a roster spot being available for Manziel, even if Miami were interested in his skill set.
Whether it be with Miami or otherwise, any return attempt by Manziel, who was one of the most publicized and polarizing quarterbacks of the past decade, surely won’t go unnoticed.
