Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is taking some heat for the unsportsmanlike conduct he displayed in Saturday’s season opener, but former NFL lineman Tony Casillas says Manziel is nothing compared to Brian Bosworth, his ex-teammate at Oklahoma.
Of the two, Bosworth “was a bigger jerk than Johnny Manziel,” Casillas said Thursday on his radio show on 107.7 The Franchise, The Oklahoman reported.
Bosworth was notorious for making controversial comments during an illustrious career at Oklahoma, but he spent just two years in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks.
“I remember I played with Brian Bosworth and there was a lot of times that I really felt like there had been a situation where either an assistant coach or head coach could’ve filtered him because he was out of hand,” Casillas said. “… I look back and the guys like that, for me I think he was a bigger jerk than Johnny Manziel. I knew he was.”
