Dallas Cowboys NFL Draft rumors: Johnny Manziel says it would be a folktale

There has been a lot of grumbling among Dallas Cowboys fans about their inability to get into the playoffs under Tony Romo, and losing when they have. According to NFL.com on Feb. 14, Johnny Manziel said that if the Cowboys drafted him in the 2014 NFL Draft, it would be like a folktale.

This isn't likely to happen, as Dallas seems pretty happy with Tony Romo as their starting quarterback, but if the Cowboys wanted a younger version of Romo, Manziel would be the perfect fit.

Johnny Manziel said that he grew up as a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, and through his years in Texas playing for the Texas A&M Aggies, he said he made it to some Cowboys games. He said that he even got to meet Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones on one of those trips.

"I didn't know him," Manziel said. "To get a chance to sit there and talk with him -- the guy is an absolute football fanatic. I really enjoyed meeting him."

Manziel went on to say that he talked for hours until his mouth was sore and Jones' was tired of hearing it. He said that it would be like a folktale for him if he got the chance to play for his favorite team in Dallas.

But, that probably won't happen. Dallas has Romo and Manziel will be a pick from one of a number of teams looking for a starting quarterback. Manziel even tweeted out that he would love to be the quarterback that finally brought a Super Bowl to Cleveland, although that tweet was since deleted.

It is likely that the Houston Texans, Cleveland Browns, or maybe the Minnesota Vikings, will take the chance on drafting Johnny Manziel in the 2014 NFL Draft and the Dallas Cowboys won't have any choice in the matter.
