Johnny Manziel is really enjoying life as a pro, and it can’t hurt to have the best in the business as your new mentor.
Manziel has sparked up a little bit of a relationship with Patriots star Tom Brady. Manziel recently acknowledge sharing text with Brady about what the combine and draft experience will be like.
According to Manziel, Brady will do whatever he can to help the former Heisman Trophy winner under one condition. Manziel has to teach Brady how to scramble and run from the pocket.
“The big thing, just enjoy the process,” Manziel said Friday at the combine about Brady’s advice. “Kind of gave me a little joke: If I teach him to how to run like I can, he’ll do anything in the world for me. It was pretty funny hearing it from him.”
Brady of course is famous or running a lineman like 5.2 40-yard dash at the 2000 NFL Combine.
“It was cool for him to reach back out to me after I extended a text message to him,” Manziel said. “It was extremely cool. Kind of a really funny conversation at first, worked our way into a little more serious conversation. It was really nice. I’m very thankful for him to be able to extend a hand out to me in the situation that I’m in.”
