Another day, another person talking about Johnny Manziel.
Yesterday, it was former Oklahoma Sooners and Dallas Cowboys coach Barry Switzer. This time, it was New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The three-time Super Bowl champion was a guest on CNBC’s Squawk Box and like every other athlete, coach and pundit, he was asked about the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner.
“He’s [Manziel] probably been the best athlete in his high school class, in his elementary school class,” Brady told CNBC via College Football Talk. “So when you look across the ball, you have respect for those guys and treat them with respect. Football’s a physical game … and as [New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft] would say, “If you’re a turd, it’s going to come back to you.”
Unlike most people who discuss the Texas A&M Aggies’ quartberack, Brady didn’t directly call out or bash Manziel and instead appeared to give him more of a warning and offered up some advice.
Both quarterbacks will be back in action this weekend. Manziel’s Aggies will host Sam Houston State Saturday at 7:00 pm EST and Brady’s Patriots will kick their season off Sunday at 1:00 pm EST in Buffalo against the Bills.
