Johnny Manziel reportedly has had “a couple of discussions” on possible NFL return

Can Johnny come marching home again?

We may not have seen the last of Johnny Manziel.

In an interview with the Dallas Morning News, and detailed in a series of tweets, Manziel says he's had conversations with NFL about returning, and says he misses the game.

He also said that he misses the game "a ton."

I think the thing I realized over the past year and the thing I realized from being away from it is really how much I miss it. That's all I've known for so long. It's what I love to do. It's hard. It's hard sitting here going through OTA time and going through summer time and then getting ready to go through camp and not being a part of it. But at the same time, I'm really optimistic and hopeful that I'll get another chance. That's really what I'm holding out for every day.

He  acknowledges that a well chronicled past of partying, a battle with substance abuse, and an altercation with an ex-girlfriend  that led to a domestic violence charge,  has harmed him in more ways than one.

I know the situations I put myself in. I know the year I took off and obviously the mistakes that I made. Right now, I'm hopeful. I'm really hopeful. I think that I made  some progress in that regard. But we'll see. Whenever I get a call, I'll do whatever I can to make the most of it.

Will get another chance? In a quarterback starved league, don't bet against it.
