Colin Kaepernick 'Good Enough' to Be on NFL Roster: Johnny Manziel

Johnny Manziel hopes to become a coach if NFL career doesn't pan out Johnny Manziel says he'd like to be a college football coach if NFL comeback falls short

TMZ posted a video of the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Texas A&M telling Clay Travis at the International Football Betting Conference that erstwhile San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick deserves to be on an NFL team.

During an appearance Saturday at the International Football Betting Conference in Costa Rica, the former Browns quarterback revealed his distant plan to shape young players from the sidelines if he can not resurrect his NFL career. "I can't get away from it", Manziel said via ESPN.

Manziel said Kaepernick is good enough to be on a roster.

Surprising to hear that from Manziel, who's also trying to find his way back into the NFL. "If I wouldn't have had as much interest as I've had this year [as far as] talking with some [NFL] teams and seeing how things have played out, I probably would have taken that route".

Johnny Manziel hasn't suited up for an National Football League team since starting for the Cleveland Browns at the end of the 2015 season but he's yet to close the book on his National Football League career.

Petition builds against Macron's First Lady plans
Macron and Brigitte's love story is quite adorned in the media both in France and overseas during the last presidential election. Any expenses of the first lady are taken from the general budget for the Élysée - this fact makes people sign the petition .

Manziel also remains in the hunt for an NFL roster spot after being cut by the Cleveland Browns in 2016, less than two years after they drafted him in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

"I think once all the other stuff quiets down a little bit, he'll be okay".

Manziel admitted he was a "hard-headed" athlete in college, indicating he was not the easiest player to coach.

The Browns released Manziel after the 2015 season amid allegations of substance abuse and a high-profile domestic incident with a former girlfriend.
