Could Johnny Manziel be closing in on a job offer from the Saints?
The troubled free-agent quarterback is drawing interest from New Orleans coach Sean Payton as a potential backup for quarterback Drew Brees, NFL Network reported Thursday.
According to the report, Manziel and Payton had breakfast during Super Bowl weekend in Houston and discussed Manziel’s potential return to football. While Manziel has no chance at earning the starting spot, Brees could serve as a valuable veteran mentor for the former Browns first-round pick.
Manziel, who was released by Cleveland last March, hasn’t played since December 2015 and has a reported six-game suspension hanging over his head for a misdemeanor assault case. Despite the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner’s many legal issues, Manziel claims to have his life together and is focused on getting back on the field.
Still, the reported interest he’s drawing from teams around the NFL has yet to turn into a contract offer.

In reality, the impact MLB is having on the world aside from the WBC is huge. And that’s a great thing.
