Manziel eyes coaching as potential next step

I don't think his career is done. "I can't get away from it", Manziel, 24, said.

Johnny Manziel sat out the entire 2016 season after no team signed him.

Manziel isn't wrong about Kaepernick's history, of course, but it's also worth noting that Kaepernick didn't even play poorly a year ago on a awful 49ers team.

"Even if he's not going to start, he's good enough to be on a roster for sure", said Manziel.

Manziel went on to clarify that if he was to get into the coaching game, it would likely be at the collegiate level. "I think once all the other stuff quiets down a little bit, he'll be OK, even though last year was a little bit of a freaky year with everything that went on". And while Manziel's passing stats improved - he completed 69% of his passes for 4,114 yards with 37 touchdowns and 13 interceptions - his rushing numbers dropped to 759 yards and nine touchdowns.


The former A&M QB has a marginal amount of coaching history. Kaepernick has also been connected to teams like the Seahawks and Ravens.

As for Manziel, his career appears to be done. He has coached at some clinics this offseason.

While selling Manziel on the sidelines might be tough for a coaching staff, his ability, improvisational skills and success in a spread offense could be a fascinating marriage with where the college game is heading. Since the Browns released him, the only sniff he's gotten from an National Football League team was when he met with Saints coach Sean Payton, but that didn't turn into a job.

He added that the CFL was "definitely something I've looked into", but that his goal was to get back to the NFL.
