Jerry Jones Changes Mind On Manziel

Posted By Sports Talk Florida On June 7, 2014 @ 1:10 PM In News and Rumors,NFL | No Comments

Jerry Jones had a lot to say on Johnny Manziel leading up to the draft. Most of the things he said about Manziel were about not picking him.

Now he is backtracking a bit  saying it was “hard” to pass up on Manziel at the draft.

Here is the quote via the Dallas Morning News

 

“Well, it was. Yes, it was,” Jones said. “First of all, I couldn’t believe he had fallen there. And secondly, we had spent a lot of time, I’d spent a lot of time [1]. He’s the kind of player that can be that kind of difference-maker. There’s no doubt in my mind that he’ll be a successful player. We have in Romo what I consider to be the better quarterback. But there’s also the future, there’s also insurance if you don’t have him. If anybody could have adjusted to Manziel’s style, we could have because we’re a lot like that with Romo.”
