Broncos could have interest in signing Johnny Manziel
Johnny Manziel stood in as the quarterback at the University of San Diego’s pro day on Thursday, and several scouts were in attendance to get a look at draft prospects, Manziel or both. The Denver Broncos were among the teams who had a representative in attendance, and it sounds like they were there for Manziel.
According to Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver, the Broncos sent a scout to watch Manziel throw passes.
Well, well. Broncos sent a scout to Johnny Manziel's throwing session today at University of San Diego Pro Day. John Elway said he would explore all options in finding a QB. He said that before Case Keenum and mindset apparently hasn't changed. #9sports

John Elway already secured his starting QB for 2018 by signing Case Keenum, but it’s possible he could be interested in a reclamation project like Manziel. For what it’s worth, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Manziel put together a strong performance.

Manziel is doing everything he can to prove to NFL teams that he is serious about a comeback, and that includes opening up about the mistakes he made during his brief pro career. While the odds are still stacked against him, the former Texas A&M star is just 25. All it takes is one team to invite him to training camp.
