Former Texas A&M star and Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel recently expressed interest in playing for the Dallas Cowboys. But to hear it from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ son, Stephen, that isn’t going to happen.
“No, there’s no chance,” Jones, the team’s CEO and director of player personnel, said during an appearance on CBS Sports Radio’s Tiki and Tierney. “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 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 that’s had some very unique successes in his life. When he is able to have his hands around some of his issues that he has off the field, then it usually translates into a success for him on the field.
“But I hope he is able to get his hands around his life, and at some point if he does, I’m sure he’ll get another chance. But at the moment, it certainly won’t be in Dallas.”
