Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports reported on Tuesday that both Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel would be interested in joining the Dallas Cowboys this offseason.
Sources close to Manziel and Griffin told Johnson that each player has long maintained that Jones would be interested if they were cut by their teams.
That remains to be seen, but Jones did express interest last month in finding a young quarterback to groom behind Tony Romo, who missed a good portion of this season with a broken collarbone.
It’s also no secret that Jones wanted to draft Manziel in 2014, and he’s admitted to being “a big admirer” of Griffin.
Griffin is scheduled to hit to open free agent market in March, while it’s only a matter of time before the Browns cut Manziel after he snuck off to Las Vegas this past weekend and tried to disguise himself with a blonde wig and mustache so no one would notice him at a popular nightclub.
I have to admit, Johnny Manziel and Robert Griffin III backing up Tony Romo would be a good deal for Dallas with all of the injuries Romo has suffered during his career. It seems like he goes on injured reserve every other season.
The hope would be that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones could help Manziel mature off the field and hopfully develop him into his future starter.
