Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Saints have "no interest" in free agent Johnny Manziel.
Manziel and coach Sean Payton met during Super Bowl week, but nothing came of the sit-down. The former first-round bust of the Browns has said he's re-committed himself to the sport in hopes of getting another chance, but it's hard to see a team taking the plunge, even though Manziel is still only 24.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Saints coach Sean Payton and Johnny Manziel met to discuss "a return to football" during Super Bowl week.

RapSheet has also reported Manziel drew "real interest" at the Combine and is still training for a return. While this report is likely true, it does not mean the Saints will rush out to sign a marginally talented quarterback with a troubling legal history, especially considering the city they play in and Manziel's issues with substance abuse. It still does not seem likely Manziel will get another shot in the NFL.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, free agent Johnny Manziel has re-hired agent Erik Burkhardt and is drawing "real interest" from teams at the Combine.

We doubt it's as exciting as RapSheet makes it sound, but it's at least a positive to see Burkhardt has rejoined forces with Manziel after Burkhardt left Manziel's side following the 2015 season. Manziel is still just 24 and adamant he's turning his life around. Maybe he'll get a chance to compete for a backup job.

The Dallas Morning News' Naheed Rajwani reports the misdemeanor assault charge against Johnny Manziel is "on track to be dismissed under conditions."

Manziel had a court hearing in Dallas on Tuesday in which the presiding judge lectured him on his responsibilities moving forward. "I want to see from you that you are taking this situation seriously," Judge Robert Canas said. "I would hate for you to miss on on the opportunity that you've got." For his part, Manziel said "everything has been going extremely smoothly" and his "life is trending upwards." Self-reportedly sober, Manziel hopes to make another run at an NFL career. Clearing up his legal troubles is a step in the correct direction, but it remains unlikely he will get another shot. A CFL job might be his best option.

Both free agent Johnny Manziel and the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders have denied a report that he worked out for the team in January.

The workout would have violated CFL rules, as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats own Manziel's Canadian negotiation rights. It's impossible to know if it really happened or not, but all involved want us to believe it didn't. Not even Manziel's Canadian rumors can be normal.
Feb 9 - 4:07 PM

The Hamilton Spectator reports free agent Johnny Manziel worked out for the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders in January.

Naturally, it was apparently an illegal workout, as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats own Manziel's CFL negotiating rights. The team has denied working out the washed-out NFLer. Going north of the border might be Manziel's only real option at this point. It would make a ton of sense for both the player and league.
Feb 9 - 2:16 PM

Alex Marvez of the Sporting News reports free agent Johnny Manziel has volunteered to take NFL-administered drug tests as part of his comeback attempt.

He claims to be sober and apparently is willing to prove it. Manziel has also been training with quarterback guru George Whitfield Jr. Even without the substance abuse issues and all his off-field distractions, the undersized Manziel was never a sure thing to make it in professional football. The former Heisman Trophy winner burned a lot of bridges on his way out of the league and remains an extreme long shot to ever play in the NFL again.
Feb 3 - 3:40 PM

Free agent Johnny Manziel says he achieved sobriety without professional assistance.

This will increase skepticism regarding Manziel's comeback attempt, which he announced this week after admitting he was "lost in the sauce" during his 2016 drug and alcohol binge. Manziel is only 24 days older than Carson Wentz.
Jan 20 - 1:25 PM

Free agent Johnny Manziel admits he was "lost in the sauce" last year.

Manziel also called himself a name, and said he's now focusing on "trying to be a good PERSON." He's apparently attempting a comeback. Manziel is still only 24, but a no-room-for-error "prospect" who's been a disaster off the field is going to be disappointed if he's waiting for the phone to ring.
Jan 19 - 3:13 PM

The Associated Press reports Johnny Manziel reached a "tentative deal" to dismiss the domestic assault case against him.

Manziel is accused of hitting and threatening ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley in January. The deal is for a conditional dismissal which is expected to be finalized during another hearing on December 1. Even with this case likely to be settled in the near future, there have been zero signs Manziel is preparing for a comeback. His NFL career is looking dead.

Free agent Johnny Manziel's four-game suspension has ended.

The former Heisman winner served a four-game ban for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Manziel isn't out of the woods yet as he'll likely be hit with another suspension, depending on the outcome of his domestic abuse case. If Manziel does return to the NFL, it probably won't happen in 2016. Free agents Karlos Williams and Manny Lawson have also finished serving their suspensions.

Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones said there's "no chance" Dallas would sign free agent Johnny Manziel.

"Obviously Johnny needs to get his hands around his life," Jones said. "He needs to do the things that make him a good person off the field, I think, before he can ever have any chance of being successful in our league." Manziel has said numerous times he'd love to play for his home-state Cowboys, but the feeling isn't mutual. Manziel is unlikely to play in 2016.

TMZ Sports reports Johnny Manziel punched a man at a wedding in Hawaii.

Manziel reportedly has a history with the punchee, and the tense relationship "came to a head" the night before the wedding. The fight was broken up quickly, and the police were not called. Manziel reportedly sent a bottle of champagne to the man's room along with a letter of apology. It does not sound like anything will come of this incident, but it is not a great look for a player who has publically claimed he is trying to get his life together.

According to the Washington Post, "many" of free agent Johnny Manziel's friends "have no idea whether he'll play football again," or "if he even wants to."

One friend said Manziel "orders the subject change" whenever someone brings up football. "Just a known thing that you don’t really bring up unless he wants to." The same friend said in May "he didn’t think Manziel had any intention of playing again." Another of Manziel's friends said Johnny Football recently resumed working out, hired a personal chef, and "has stuck to his goal" of staying sober since July 1. A statement from Manziel was emailed to the Post. "I’m not saying I’m never drinking again, but for now just mostly being healthy," Manziel wrote. "I’ve got a killer gym in my house and I can spend time working out. I’m interested in doing a lot of different things in my life — including football — but, right now, I’m just exploring options and waiting to see what the future holds."

Profootballtalk reports the Browns successfully voided free agent Johnny Manziel's remaining guaranteed money before his release.

It means Manziel is out $2.173 million. Per Mike Florio, no grievance was filed, presumably because the NFLPA knew it didn't have a case. The Browns could void Manziel's remaining guarantees over a plethora of issues, including his suspension and skipping town late last season. If Manziel is to believed, he's been sober since July 1.
