Manziel was released by the Cleveland Browns this off-season and has not been signed to another team since.

Former Tennessee Titans quarterback Chris Simms has stood up for the former Browns quarterback and claims that there is still hope for Manziel.
Simms acknowledges that for Manziel, the 2016 season will not happen as it is highly unlikely that he will find a new team by then.
However the son of NFL analyst Phil Simms held out hope for Manziel's future, claiming that he is young enough to salvage his career.
Speaking with TMZ, Simms claimed that while the 2016 season won't be happening for Manziel, it is not too late for him and there is no ruling him out for a comeback in 2017.
Simms discussed Manziel and claimed that not only would he need to start training again, but that he would also need the help of a psychiatrist.
Another controversial name
While talking with the former NFL star, TMZ brought up the name of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady who is currently set to sit out the first four games of next season.
Simms is still excited for the Patriots prospects as he listed the array of offensive talent that Brady is set to command in his 12 games next season.
Brady's four game suspension has already been suspended for one year and will come into effect at the start of the 2016 season and Simms feels that Brady should finally accept his punishment for Deflategate.
