Johnny Manziel met with Patriots at Texas A&M's pro day: report

Johnny Manziel's NFL comeback attempt continues to gain more traction.

The former Cleveland Browns quarterback met with the Patriots on Tuesday at Texas A&M's pro day, according to the Boston Herald.

Manziel, 25, threw to Texas A&M receivers and running backs as they prepare for the NFL Draft. Representatives from all 32 teams were in attendance.

Manziel spoke with the Patriots both before and after the session, according to The Herald.

The Patriots were also reportedly the first team Manziel met with ahead of the 2014 draft.

Tom Brady and Brian Hoyer are currently the only quarterbacks on the Patriots' roster.

The Patriots have traditionally only carried two quarterbacks, but Bill Belichick has sometimes veered from this philosophy, most recently in 2016 when New England drafted Jacoby Brissett in the third round and listed him as the third quarterback behind Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo.

Manziel previously threw in front of scouts from 13 teams at San Diego's pro day last Thursday. Representatives from the Patriots -- as well as the Giants and Jets -- were in attendance.

Scouts reportedly came away impressed with Manziel following Texas A&M's pro day, with's Gil Brandt tweeting, "Hearing really good reports from my scouts on the ground on how Johnny Manziel's workout went today at Texas A&M's pro day. One said he even looked better than he did in 2014."

In addition to throwing at San Diego's and Texas A&M's respective pro days, Manziel plans to participate in the Spring League, a developmental football league that runs from March 28 through April 15 in Austin, Texas. The league will stage games on April 7 and April 12.

Manziel, who last played in the NFL in 2015, is attempted to resurrect his career after washing out of the NFL due to substance abuse issues and immature behavior following two seasons with the Browns.

If an opportunity to return to the NFL doesn't present itself, Manziel said he plays to play in the CFL in order to continue his professional football career.
