Johnny Manziel: Tom Brady Wants Me To Teach Him How To Run


Tom Brady, Jeris PendletonTom Brady will do anything for top quarterback prospect Johnny Manziel under one very unlikely condition: The slow-footed New England Patriots quarterback wants Manziel to teach him how to scramble.

The Texas A&M quarterback reached out to Brady for advice¬†about this week’s NFL Scouting Combine.

“The big thing, just enjoy the process,” Manziel said Friday at the combine about Brady’s advice. “Kind of gave me a little joke: If I teach him to how to run like I can, he’ll do anything in the world for me. It was pretty funny hearing it from him.”

Brady ran a 5.28-second 40-yard dash at the 2000 combine. Manziel is expected to run in the 4.5-second range. Manziel said it was nice Brady took the time to text him back.

“It was cool for him to reach back out to me after I extended a text message to him,” Manziel said. “It was extremely cool. Kind of a really funny conversation at first, worked our way into a little more serious conversation. It was really nice. I’m very thankful for him to be able to extend a hand out to me in the situation that I’m in.”

Manziel is trying to woo Brady’s old offensive coordinator, Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien. The Texans hold the No. 1 pick in May’s NFL draft.
