Johnny Manziel's agent fires back at new Texas coach
MAY 05, 2014 11:19a ET
This is what happens when the NFL Draft is pushed back to May and college football coaches have down time after spring ball.
People say things on Twitter that aren't a big deal, except because nobody in the football world has much to do right now, they get more attention than they deserve.
So here we are with new Texas defensive coordinator Vance Bedford and the Johnny Manziel camp.
This past weekend, Bedford took to Twitter to offer some thoughts on Manziel, Texas A&M's former QB and a top prospect for this year's NFL Draft.
You decide whether they warranted the criticism Bedford received on Twitter after posting:
Manziel is a top 10 pick by the scouts. I wish him the best. He played backyard ball for 3 years. Now he will have to learn how to be a Qb— Vance Bedford (@CoachBedfordUT) May 5, 2014
Seems rather tame, but Bedford still had to clarify them when fans reacted.
No one took a@shot at manziel. Get a life people. Spread qbs have struggled in the NFL. The eagles run the spread in the NFL— Vance Bedford (@CoachBedfordUT) May 5, 2014
It is funny. I wish manziel the best. Spread qbs struggle in pro style offense. Peyton and Brady are in the gun reading defenses— Vance Bedford (@CoachBedfordUT) May 5, 2014
It was pretty much over, until Monday morning when none other than Erik Burkhardt, Manziel's agent, felt the need to enter the discussion:
We can't wait until Bedford responds to Burkhardt.
Actually, we really can. Please get here, NFL Draft and fall camp and anything involving actual football.
