Johnny Manziel loves to party, but don’t doubt his love for the game of football. Don’t doubt that he wants to be a great football player. He has been working out in San Diego in order to work on his game and he wants to be the top quarterback selected in the draft. He also has reached out to one of the best quarterbacks in the game in order to get his opinions on the combine:
Whitfield said the two enjoyed a nice text exchange. Brady did offer up some advice for Manziel, who is one of the major stories here at the NFL’s scouting combine. Manziel, more popularly known as Johnny Football, is expected to go in the top five of the draft, perhaps No. 1 overall to the Houston Texans if new head coach Bill O’Brien takes to Manziel’s scrambling and improvisational ways at quarterback.
Whitfield said Brady encouraged Manziel to “ignore the noise” which is a popular phrase in Foxboro with Patriot players blocking out what’s being said and written about them both good and bad. Brady also told Manziel to enjoy the moment and experience the ride of being drafted and entering the next phase of his career.
Ignore the noise. Ignore all the extracurricular on Manziel. He is putting in work to be the best.
