Union Between This QB And The Dallas Cowboys Is Inevitable

The Dallas Cowboys have been successful so far about filling holes in their roster through free agency using the smart approach of letting the market settle down and finding some team friendly bargains in the process.

This strategy has allowed them to approach the draft without any glaring needs, which should allow them to select the best player available, regardless of position.

One area of concern for the Cowboys that they haven’t been able to address thus far through free agency is the backup quarterback position, although they tried.

They showed interest in veteran quarterback Matt Moore, and even went as far as bringing him in for a visit. Moore ultimately decided to return to the Miami Dolphins, leaving the Cowboys with one less option to add competition to the position.

As things stand now, it looks as if another Moore will be backing up Tony Romo in 2016, Kellen Moore, who performed admirably when given the chance last season.

Although the coaching staff may feel somewhat comfortable with Kellen Moore as their #2 QB, I still believe that they will turn over every rock to ensure that they have the right person to fill the void if Romo goes down with an injury once again.

There is, however, one free agent quarterback still available that Jerry Jones has been infatuated with over the past several years, and I believe that at some point in the near future this player could be wearing a star on his helmet.

Jerry Jones has had a man-crush on Johnny Manziel since he declared for the draft back in 2014, and the inevitable union between the two could be just around the corner.

It’s no secret that Jones nearly drafted Manziel in the 2014 NFL Draft. He has even admitted that he had Manziel’s name written down on the draft card ready to be turned in before he was talked down and convinced that they should select Zack Martin instead.

I think we can all agree that the Cowboys dodged a bullet there, considering how Martin has performed thus far in his NFL career and how Manziel has done just about everything in his power to force his way out of Cleveland.

Unfortunately for Manziel, it’s those shenanigans that have caused practically zero interest for his services from teams around the NFL.

That says something, considering Jerry Jones has publicly voiced his belief that Manziel has a fascinating skill set that should allow him to become successful at the NFL level. Once Cleveland finally decided to move on from him, many people believed that he was destined to become a Dallas Cowboy, but that hasn’t happened as of yet.

I truly believe that the best destination for Johnny Manziel to end up could possibly be the Dallas Cowboys and I’ll tell you why.

I know what you are probably thinking. Manziel in Dallas would be a complete disaster if you take into account his partying lifestyle and mix in the Dallas nightlife, but I think the Cowboys can provide a structure to help him get his life/career back on track.

In the past, the Cowboys have dealt with player’s off-field troubles by having them work with adviser David Wells. Wells has been assisting players since 1995 and has worked with several Cowboys players, such as Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin, guard Nate Newton, cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones, defensive tackle Josh Brent, and wide receiver Dez Bryant.

Both Brent and Bryant even moved into Wells’ home in DeSoto, Texas while they were being mentored under his watchful eye.

Wells is known as a crisis management expert and takes a hands-on approach with the players, leading them in the right direction. He doesn’t have an official role with the Cowboys organization so he is usually hired on as a contractor.

Under Wells’ mentorship, Johnny Manziel could get his life headed in the right direction and repair a public image that has been damaged by his partying lifestyle.

The issues keeping Manziel out of the NFL at this point in his career have nothing to do with his talent; it’s the human element of his current lifestyle that is turning teams off. If he could possibly show the Cowboys that there is some semblance of turning his life around, Jerry Jones would sign him in a heartbeat.

No really knows what the future holds for Johnny Manziel, but you can rest assured that Jerry Jones will be keeping a close eye on the young man. That’s why I believe a union between the Dallas Cowboys and Manziel is inevitable.

    Manziel could end up in Dallas eventually. At this point he is done with NFL football. He needs to seek treatment and prove over a period of time he has his life in order and is focused on football and improving his QB skills/abilities. He might be able to pull off a comeback in 2017 if he gets going now but it may take longer than that. I hope he gets his life together and gets another chance.

      I wouldn't be surprised to see him in a uniform in 2016. Of course I think it will be after he agrees to some kind of counseling/rehab and complete some sort of program.

  • Ethan

    The ONLY reason Manziel is "linked" to the Cowboys is unsubstantiated rumors like this passing for journalism and begging for eyeballs.

    • Brian Martin

      I truly believe that Jerry Jones is interested IF Johnny Manziel can prove that he's getting his life together and focusing on his professional career.

  • RJ Ochoa

    I have never felt as confident in the notion that Johnny will never be a Cowboy. It's a good feeling, haha.

        Say what you want but Stephen is the one pulling the trigger on players these days! If it was Jerry the dumb ass "Johnny football" would already be a Cowboy!

  • Keith

    This was debunked yesterday. NO MANZEL! He really isn't Jerry's kind of project yet. He has committed a felony unless of course he does time over his girlfriend or gets caught dealing dope!!! Then all bets are off!!! Ready for another 8-8 season?? Last year will make that acceptable AGAIN like Jerry said 2 years ago that thrills him to lose the last game of the season as long as the divison is so bad they have a CHANCE of playoffs!!!

  • RJ Ochoa

    I agree. There's some perspective in the FO these days. No Manziel. Feels great now.

    How is Jerry going to help Manziel, when he, himself has 19 year old strippers hanging around his crotch? Maybe he wants Manziel around so he can hookup with his teenage girlfriends.

  • Cowboys Lover

    Jerry is rich, but he doesn't have his life in order. In my opinion he drinks too much, does things with young girls that he shouldn't be doing! Someone needs to ask Irvin if Jerry owned the White House or was ever a visitor over there

    Sadly I agree. If you are a Cowboys fan who doesn't want Manziel (like me) you can't really rest comfortably until Manziel is with another team, in jail or worse. I really want Goff but know sooner or later I just know you are going to hear them say "here's Johnny"
