Don Banks of Sports Illustrated is reporting that Johnny Manziel would prefer not to play in Jacksonville. The report says nothing about the Jaguars as an organization.
I’ve also heard that Manziel himself isn’t wild about the idea of landing in Jacksonville, one of the NFL’s smaller markets, and that the Jaguars would not be his first choice of employers. It’s not a preference based on people, only location. But Manziel doesn’t get to choose his new workplace address, and quarterback-needy Jacksonville remains very much a possibility as his ultimate destination. There was aHouston Chronicle report on Wednesday morning that had momentum building for the Manziel-Jaguars marriage to unfold Thursday night.
The same report says that Manziel’s family doesn’t think Houston or anywhere in Texas is the best fit for Manziel.
