Manziel has spoken to teams about National Football League return

13 December 2015 Cleveland Browns Quarterback Johnny Manziel  in action during a NFL game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Cleveland Browns at First Energy Stadium in Cleveland OH

Hindsight documents the opposite happened: The big money only sped up Manziel's penchant for partying, which quickly derailed his reputation and now has a 24-year-old former Heisman Trophy victor trying to drum up interest at a fantasy football convention rather than gearing up to attend a training camp.

We could say that Manziel's conversations with the National Football League may well have consisted of him dialing the front desk and getting sent to voicemail.

A first-round selection by the Browns in 2014, Manziel was released by Cleveland in March 2016 after two turbulent seasons that included a domestic violence case that has since been dropped, rehab, his agent leaving him, endorsements disassociating with him and multiple incidents of party antics. "I know the year I took off and obviously the mistakes that I made", Manziel told Machota. Right now, I'm hopeful.

"I think that I made some progress in that regard".

"Whenever I get the call, I'll do whatever I can to make the most of it". Whether Manziel has added a dose of self-awareness to the "new him" remains to be seen, but over this past weekend he was certainly saying the right things. That's all I've know for so long.

Jason Gillespie considered applying for Indian cricket team's coaching job
Arun had earlier served as the national team's bowling coach during Shastri's stint as India team director during 2014-16. First, there was drama and confusion over the selection of the head coach of the Indian cricket team.

A team's signing Manziel, who was a bad player when he was active and hasn't been active in 18 months, would certainly create a new dynamic in the Kaepernick banishment discussion.

The thing he learned the most during this time, Manziel says, is how much he misses football. Greatly missing the game is one of the driving factors for the former Aggies Heisman Trophy victor. It's what I love to do. But at the same time, I'm really optimistic and hopeful that I'll get another chance.

He went 2-6 in two seasons there while completing 57 percent of his passes for 1,675 yards with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. "That's really what I'm holding out for every day".

If the NFL doesn't work out, Manziel could always take his talents up North and play in the Canadian Football League to jump start his career.
