Saints take interest in former Browns QB Johnny Manziel

After the Cleveland Browns released QB Johnny Manziel last year, I made a point of not covering any further “gossip” related to the quarterback’s personal life. He needed to be disassociated with the Browns, and that’s what happened. Besides a few articles related to his salary cap charge after being cut, the only time we talked about Manziel was when someone was quoted as talking about his playing time in Cleveland (i.e. Ray Farmer here, and a friend of Manziel’s here).

One thing I thing I still take interest in with Manziel is a potential comeback attempt to the NFL, and on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network noted that the New Orleans Saints have shown some interest in him:

The news has already brought on some controversy, especially when fans look at what Manziel did vs. what Colin Kaepernick did, and the fact that teams seemingly don’t want to touch Kaepernick.
