Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones weighs in on chances his team signs Johnny Manziel


Johnny Manziel might be open to the idea of joining the Dallas Cowboys, but the feeling is very clearly not mutual.

During an interview on CBS Sports, via Dallas Morning News, Jones discussed the idea of adding Manziel:

"There's no chance," Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Friday morning on the Tiki and Tierney Show on CBS Sports Radio Network. "Obviously Johnny needs to get his hands around his life. He needs to do the things that make him a good person off the field, I think, before he can ever have any chance of being successful in our league.

"He's a guy obviously from Texas that we've all followed and had an amazing career there at (Texas) A&M. Unfortunately, he has some things that are holding him back not only as a football player, but as a person in life. We certainly hope he gets his hands around that because he's obviously a guy who has had some very unique successes in his life."

Manziel's offseason has been tumultuous at best, as he's been spotted in and out of clubs, has a pending domestic assault case and is now trying to stay sober.

If Johnny Football can get his, "hands around his life," maybe one day he will land with the hometown Cowboys. For now, it seems that's out of reach for Manziel.
