Former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has a market and is drawing interest, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Manziel was cut the Cleveland Browns March 11 after two turbulent seasons there. He recently hired Rosenhaus to replace Erik Burkhardt, who dropped him citing a lack of accountability.

Manziel wants to continue his football career and Rosenhaus is at the NFL owners meetings apprising teams of his situation and what he is doing.

“I’m not talking much about him publicly,” Rosenhaus said Monday at the Boca Raton Resort and Club. “Much of his life and career is public so from the business side we are trying to keep that behind the scenes. Yes, there are teams interested in him.”

Manziel faces some legal challenges in getting back into the NFL. He is still waiting word from a Dallas grand jury regarding a domestic violence incident with a former girl friend.

“I’m not going to get into that,” Rosenhaus said.

Michael Irvin implores the Cowboys to sign Johnny Manziel as a free agent.

Ifedi was at A&M for two seasons with Johnny Football.
