Jerry Jones says he won't be signing Johnny Manziel

Johnny Manziel is one of the biggest question marks in the NFL right now, meanwhile the Dallas Cowboys are one of the teams with the most questions surrounding them.

The two have been rumoured to be coming together this off-season with the former Cleveland Browns quarterback now a free agent.

Wrong rumours

Manziel has been spotted in Dallas quite a lot this off-season which has only increased the speculation linking him with a move to the Cowboys.

But with legal issues and NFL disciplinary issues pending, it looks like Manziel is too much work for even Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to take on.

Jones has supposedly been a huge fan of Manziel for many years but recent comments by one of his friends seem to suggest that the former Heisman Trophy winner won't be playing in Dallas any time soon.

Jones' friend T. Boone Pickens was speaking with the Cowboys' owner recently and has now relayed his comments.

"No, there's no place for Manziel ... He's through with football. I had dinner with Jones the other night and he said he's not on their list."

It looks like Jerry Jones will not be making any moves to sign the troubled quarterback as Manziel remains in NFL exile.

It is hard to picture a future for the former Texas A&M star who is set for a hearing before a grand jury over claims that he physically abused his former girlfriend.

Thrown away

Manziel famously checked himself into rehab last off-season and began to make some positive strides until it all fell apart again last season.

Throughout the off-season, Manziel has been spotted in several different places but always in nightclubs which will obviously not send a message of rehabilitation to NFL owners.

It will be a bold move by any team who now move to sign the former Browns star.
