Manziel throws in front of scouts from 12 teams

Johnny Manziel threw in front of scouts from 12 NFL teams on Thursday during the University of San Diego's pro day.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner last played in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns in 2015 after being selected by the team in the first round in 2014.

The Browns were among the teams in attendance as Manziel made 38 throws in a light rain.

Ben Brunnschweiler, the school's director of football operations, told USA Today that Manziel has been working out recently with Torero players. The pro day was scheduled on behalf of four San Diego seniors, including receiver Justin Priest and tight end Ross Dwelley, so Manziel's participation also served to help the prospects.

It was believed to be his first appearance in front of scouts since Manziel's time with the Browns. He was released in March 2016 after numerous off-field issues and a suspension under the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Manziel, who got married this month, has been working recently with quarterback trainer George Whitfield.
