Because of Johnny Football, Manziel is not with the Cowboys

Johnny Manziel’s recent comments on TMZ shows why he is out of a NFL job, despite several teams in need of his quarterback talent, like the Dallas Cowboys.

The only thing standing in Johnny Manziel‘s path to NFL redemption is the very spotlight that got him to the big stage: Johnny Football.

If it wasn’t for the alter ego, which headlined college football and earned the young star a Heisman Trophy at Texas A&M, Manziel would be prepping his quarterback papers for the 2016 NFL regular season.

These days, however, he is out and about rubbing his shoes across the greater Los Angeles area, living the life of a celebrity clubber as if there weren’t enough Justin Bieber folks on Earth.

With more than a few NFL Clubs desperate — Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets, and the Denver Broncos to name a few — to fill their shelves with quarterback talent, Manziel continues to swing and strike out gloriously. But the epic strikeouts truly reach its apex when considering this: Johnny Football doesn’t need to swing in the first place.

By not saying any words he takes four balls and uses the walk-on-base strategy.

But talk he shall.

In an article inked by Connor Orr of titled, Johnny Manziel says he’s living with Von Miller, the 23-year old was spotted outside a club in Hollywood. Mr. Manziel spotted TMZ cameras, and without missing a Hollywood beat, the Johnny Football guy came out.

"“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with partying, bro,” Manziel said. “There’s a difference between partying and getting out of control. You’ve seen me here how many nights in a row? Five, six? Exactly. What have we been doing since we’ve been here? Walking out being chill, being cool with y’all. I’m cool! I’m not drunk. I’m not drunk, man. We’re just hanging out and enjoying great food.”"

Recently, Manziel and the Denver Broncos were tagged together as possible business partners. How did Mr. Manziel articulate his wisdom for his potential boss and head coach?

"“So the Broncos. John Elway – great dude,” Manziel said. “Kubiak, Aggie my man. Aggie my man. Listen, great organization. Anywhere I get picked up bro is a blessing. Somewhere bro. Whatever happens, I love ball, I want to play, and that’s the team I want to go to.”"

John Elway. Great dude? Really?

If there is one thing owner and general manager Jerry Jones got right thus far in his long career with the Cowboys, where there are more mishaps than victories, it is the spraying of bug repellent all over the Cowboys organization to keep Johnny Football out of Dallas.

Manziel is a stink bomb. He is an adult like “teenager” with potential NFL talent, who is stuck without a job and remains busy by running around the globe in street clothes.

The truth is, the former first rounder would be a Dallas Cowboy right now if it weren’t for his other half. The Cowboys have risked it on lesser quarterbacks in the past (insert Ryan Leaf). They even swung desperately to boost the pass rush last season with defensive end Greg Hardy.

But not even Johnny Football, the dual-threat enigma who stole the college football scene, can save Johnny Manziel in the big boy leagues.

And as you can see from the TMZ video yourself, there doesn’t seem to be a way to separate the Johnny Football from the Johnny Manziel.

That’s just too bad. It’s also just too sad.

Because the Dallas Cowboys need some real talent to groom behind the aging star in Tony Romo — the Boys will certainly spend a precious draft pick to find a quarterback in this year’s draft.

It’s saying a lot when Jerry Jones, the man who pushed the Johnny Manziel draft card forward, is denying you a job. The man once loved him. Maybe he still does. For now, he won’t touch him.

That’s all on Jonathan Paul Manziel.

At least the Hollywood clubs will take him.

Next: Cowboys Tony Romo, Ezekiel Elliott could be new Elway, Davis
