Johnny Manziel threw in front of NFL scouts for the second time in a week on Tuesday at Texas A&M’s pro day, and all 32 teams were in attendance this time around.
Previously, he had thrown at the University of San Diego in front of 13 teams (video here). The reports from both of those throwing sessions were very positive, and one scout gave Manziel some very high praise.
Afterward, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reported that the New England Patriots took the time to visit with Manziel both before and after Tuesday’s throwing session.
Many people figures this means the Patriots are potentially interested in signing the former Cleveland Browns first-round bust. Those people had some very interesting reactions on Twitter.

I would buy a Johnny Manziel Patriots jersey and wear it as often as I wore my bright orange graphic t-shirt with a baseball on it in 2nd grade… every single day for 3 months straight

The Patriots are going to get one more Super Bowl with the Brady/Belichick tandem and then it'll be 15 straight years of domination by the McDaniels/Manziel tandem and I'm not prepared for that https://t.co/j39r9As1IX

Manziel in New England would be another mayhem fest like when Tebow signed. So different yet so much the same, but that same attempted circus Belichick would squash before it started. I think Manziel would have a better chance to stick around though.
