Cowboys Say They Aren’t Looking to Draft Manziel, But Is it Smokescreen?


Despite reports that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is smitten with Johnny Manziel, Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Cowboys would love for Manziel to fall to them, but they won’t be drafting him.

“(The Cowboys) would love to be on the clock with Johnny Manziel sitting there, but not to take him. Not to take him,” Rapoport said Sunday on NFL Network’s “Total Access”. “Just so they would have some ammunition for a potential trade for some team wanting to come up and grab Johnny Manziel.”

The speculation will soon be over, but no team is drafting Manziel in the first round to have him sit and watch for a few years.
