Johnny Manziel To The Los Angeles Rams?


With the need at the quarterback position and the fact that the Rams moved to Los Angeles, there are going to be a lot of rumors when it comes to the big name quarterbacks on the free agent market such as Johnny Manziel and Robert Griffin III.

There have already been rumors about RGIII being “very interested” in being on the Rams 2016 roster, however, it now looks like Manziel could be making his way into the mix.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Manziel “might” be gaining interest from three teams, and last month, Manziel told people close to him that the Rams were one of three teams interested in him.

Right now, Manziel is still on the Browns’ roster as they are still trying to see if they can get anything for him, if a team doesn’t bite within the next week or so, it is very possible that they could end up releasing the former first round pick. The recent interest is why the Browns most likely did not release him at the beginning of the league year.

The Rams had interest in Manziel during the draft and instead took Aaron Donald, and as mentioned earlier it looks like they still at least have some minor interest in him. It’s hard to tell what any of this means, but its certainly a situation to keep an eye on.

Since joining the Browns as a rookie, Manziel hasn’t made much noise on the field but rather off of it. The quarterback is likely facing a suspension for a still unresolved domestic incident in January.

To add fuel to the fire, Manziel was spotted in Los Angeles at a Kings game last night and has been seen partying in Hollywood.

Jeff Fisher and Les Snead have said that they could trade or sign a quarterback to compete with Nick Foles and Case Keenum this offseason, but it is uncertain who that will be and until that is figured out, rumors like this will continue to surface.
