Report: Cowboys no longer interested in Manziel

BY foxsports • February 5, 2016

If Johnny Manziel had dreams of playing for the Dallas Cowboys, those dreams may now well be over.

According to a high-ranking Dallas Cowboys source, the team is no longer interested in adding Manziel to the roster, according to a report released Friday morning by WFAA Channel 8 in Dallas.

The WFAA report also indicated that the source informed the station earlier in the week that if Manziel were to be released by the Cleveland Browns, he doubted the Cowboys would seriously persue the former Heisman-winning quarterback, but after the allegations came out on Thursday that his ex-girlfriend told police that Manziel struck her during a July 30 incident, the Cowboys are no interested.

Dallas still needs a backup quarterback for Tony Romo and could address that need through the NFL Draft or by signing another Texas college football hero, former Baylor star Robert Griffin III, should the Washington Redskins release him.
