Johnny Manziel's NFL career has been nothing if not eventful.

The second-year quarterback has been embroiled in more controversies (both of the quarterback and off-field variety) than most players who've been in the league for a decade and things look to have come to a head this week.

What's next

With confusion surrounding his whereabouts on Saturday followed up by a no-show to a Sunday meeting, numerous publications are reporting the Cleveland Browns are all set to cut ties with the former Texas A&M star. And, according to Sports Illustrated's Peter King, there is one franchise Johnny Football has his eye on as his next destination.

After documenting Manziel's latest discrepancy, highlighting the fact the QB went AWOL rather than showing up for a scheduled concussion checkup yesterday, King posted the following to Twitter:


Manziel may want to end up in Dallas, but could such a scenario really play out over the next few months.

The 23-year-old has been linked with the Cowboys in the past and the team's owner, Jerry Jones, reportedly came close to drafting the Texas native back in 2014.

Moreover, whilst Manziel's baggage is likely to put off most franchises should he be jettisoned from the Browns this offseason, Jones and the Cowboys have been known to hand out second chances to controversial players in the past.

And let's not forget America's Team's struggles at the quarterback position this season. All being well, Tony Romo will their healthy starter in 2016, but Dallas are certainly in the market for a talented backup.

Whether than will be Johnny Manziel remains to be seen. One thing does look certain though - the former Heisman winner looks to have played his last snap in Cleveland colors.
