It’s becoming increasingly obvious that no one has the slightest clue where Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is going to end up later today.
But it’s also becoming obvious that a certain owner has a six-shooter in his pocket for Johnny Football.
ESPN analyst Todd McShay said earlier today that he’s heard Manziel was the top player on the Cowboys’ draft board.
That’s a board assembled by others, but ultimately decided upon by the man who declared two years ago that he wanted him some “glory hole.”
Drafting Manziel the year after giving Tony Romo a contract which will pay him $57 million over its first three years is such a Jones move that perhaps we’re just hoping it happens for the fun which will ensue.
But it would also be a troubling sign for a team which needs so many things on defense, that it would use a fixed-price commodity like a first-round pick on a backup quarterback.
