Rumors of a possible reunion between free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel and the NFL are heating up. This comes after Manziel recently participated in two pro days, looking rather impressive in the process.

Now, according to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo! Sports, several teams are reportedly “intrigued” by the possibility of signing Manziel.

There are certainly several teams that could use an upgrade at a backup quarterback. Manziel might just fit the bill in some situations. Among the more prominent of clubs out there that met with Manziel at his most recent pro day were the New England Patriots.

Coincidentally enough, they are in the market for depth beyond Tom Brady and Brian Hoyer.

Setting that scenario aside, it is at least positive to hear that Manziel is being taken seriously again in the NFL. The young quarterback has gone through some extreme transformations in his behavior and remains dedicated to resuming his career in football.

We will see if any teams reportedly interested actually make the next move. Manziel is on course to play in the Spring League provided he is still a free agent when it begins.
