It appears Johnny Manziel is quite the talkative character today.

In addition to suggesting that playing for the Dallas Cowboys would be a dream scenario and hinting he would lead the Cleveland Browns to the Super Bowl, the former Texas A&M quarterback had strong words for the Houston Texans organization today.

Houston of course owns the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and Manziel said the Texans passing on him would be the worst decision they ever made.

“It would be the worst decision they’ve ever made,” he says, smiling. “I’d be in the same division playing against them twice a year. Sorry, but you just turned that chip on my shoulder from a Frito into a Dorito.”

Johnny Football’s suggestion that he’d be playing in the ‘same division’ comes from the assumption that the Jacksonville Jaguars could draft him third overall.

Manziel went on to say that playing in the state of Texas would mean a lot to him and while he grew up a Cowboys fan, he always had a rooting interest in the Texas.
