Dallas Cowboys CEO: ‘No chance’ Johnny Manziel will play for us
Could embattled football player and former Texas A&M prodigy Johnny Manziel (who might or might not want to get back into action in the NFL, depending on what you read) make his grand return playing for the Dallas Cowboys? Not if Jerry Jones’ son has anything to say about it.
FILE – In this May 5, 2016 file photo, former Cleveland Browns NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel sits while his defense attorneys confer with the prosecution during his initial hearing in Dallas. Manziel’s representatives say the troubled quarterback was involved in a hit-and-run accident, and that the former Texas A&M star wasn’t seriously injured. Manziel’s publicist, Denise Michaels, said the former Cleveland player reported the incident to police, but attorney Bob Hinton says Dallas police deny that a report was filed. It wasn’t immediately clear when or where the accident happened. (Smiley N. Pool/The Dallas Morning News via AP, Pool, file)

Cowboys CEO and director of player personnel Stephen Jones sounded off to CBS Sports Radio’s Tiki Barber and Brandon Tierney about the hypothetical Manzielaissance:
“No, there’s no chance. Obviously Johnny needs to get his hands around his life. He needs to do the things that make him a good person off the field, I think, before he can ever have any chance of being successful in our league.”
Manziel’s brief career with the Cleveland Browns ended in March. Read Jones’ full interview at CBS Sports.
