Report: Johnny Manziel visiting the Patriots April 1, 2014 by Paul Jackiewicz Leave a Comment According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Johnny Manziel is visiting the Patriots. Source: Johnny Manziel spotted in New England, set for a visit with the #Patriots tomorrow. Agent @ErikBurkhardt would not confirm. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 1, 2014 Don’t expect the Pats to try and get Manziel in the first round. But if he slips into the second or third, they might jump on him.
