Anybody read June Jones comments about Johnny Manziel while in Hamilton?

Seemed like he genuinely liked him.

June Jones air raid w/ Manziel coming to Houston.

We have clearance.

Johnny needs stability, maturity and a team. I hope and pray he comes home to Tx. But for that to happen the rules for assigning QB's to the league needs to be defined. I've seen nothing except articles about a draft. Will Johnny not be the first pick? I think his personal situation may cause him to fall down the draft board. So if Houston doesn't get him I hope Dallas does. Even tho I already HATE DALLAS!

Manziel is not guaranteed to even be going to Houston or Dallas. Players are going to be signed to league contracts first. Then put into a pool for the draft. No player allocations or free agent signings by the individual teams. The league is not doing a territorial system.

If the league signs Manziel. Then it’s a matter of which of the 8 teams wants to draft him. For all we know, Manziel could end up in St. Louis if he’s drafted there.

If Houston gets pick #1 I think Johnny Manziel has to be the choice, but if Dallas gets #1 overall then we might see them go defense with Shawn Oakman. Or maybe we see Bob Stoops select a familiar face in Landry Jones? One thing's for certain, the XFL draft will be fun to watch!
Teams I'm Thinking About Rooting For:

1.Dallas

3.Houston
4.LA
5.NY
6.Seattle

8.St. Louis

But yet, Jones never played Manziel in the regular season and he was traded midway through. So that might be all talk.

I'd think, though, that if a player really wanted to go to a specific location, the XFL could nudge a few shoulders to make it happen. That's the beauty of a single-entity league.

That was for the benefit of Manziel, whether he realizes it or not.
