Johnny Manziel has been one of the favorites in the discussion of what the Houston Texans will do with the No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick.
But the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner might end up with the other team in Texas.
“I’ve heard this rumor for a month — the Cowboys will figure out a way to get Manziel,” Nantz told ESPNCleveland.com. “Wherever Manziel goes, there is going to be more clamoring about Johnny Manziel than there would be about Blake Bortles going No. 1 or (Jadeveon) Clowney going No. 1, or anyone else. This is a guy that there’s just a tremendous interest in everything he does.”
There’s been talk all offseason about the Cowboys’ possible interest in the Manziel, but it didn’t seem likely with Dallas picking 16th in the draft and quarterback Tony Romo getting a six-year, $108 million contract extension last year.
The Cowboys also signed former Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden to a two-year deal last month.
