New England Patriots: All signs point to Johnny Manziel

Bill Belichick

But the Patriots received a closer look at the Heisman Trophy victor, with the Boston Herald's Karen Guregian reporting that Manziel spoke with New England before and after the session.

According to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald, the Patriots met with the former Browns QB before and after his throwing session with the Aggies.

The Patriots were also in attendance when Manziel threw at University of San Diego's pro day last week.

For now, Manziel should continue to show he's serious about trying to return to the NFL.

But also because the Patriots are, after trading Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers during the season past year, eventually looking for a successor for Brady in New England.

He said: "I've blocked it off". "I can't do anything, I can't stress about it, all I can do is make sure I'm where I need to be". "If not and I don't get the opportunity to go back, I'm going to go play in the CFL and things are going to be fine".

Manziel was released by the Cleveland Browns, who took him in the first round of the 2014 draft, in March 2016 after numerous off-field issues and a suspension under the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Previous reports indicated the team offered him a two-year contract in January, though that was as much about extending negotiation rights with Manziel for the next year as anything. While he still likely has a long way to go before he's ready to make an National Football League roster, the progress has to be encouraging for Manziel moving forward.

"I think just having both those guys, to be able pick their brains and to know what not to do and how to stay out of certain situations - it's good for me". "I felt like the ball came out really well today".
