Manziel 'Blocking Out' Speculation of What's Next

College Station, TX - Johnny Manziel was a focal point of Texas A&M's Pro Day, again on Tuesday in College Station.

Manziel worked out in front of scouts in a highly publicized pro day-back in April of 2014, before being selected in the first round by the Cleveland Browns. 

Now Manziel is on the comeback trail and was in College Station to throw to the backs and receivers under the watchful eye of NFL scouts. Manziel recognizes he hasn't made it easy for his alma mater to still support him at times but he's thankful, Coach Fisher and the Aggie players allowed him to be a prt of things.

"To be like that and roll out the red carpet, especially at a time in my life where I don't feel like I've made the school, exactly proud all the time, for him to be like that -- I've only met him twice, and he's been great to me both times," Manziel said. "So I want to say thank you to him, thank you to Christian and the rest of the guys, for allowing me to come out and be a part of it."

As speculation about his future continues to swirl, Manziel said he is just blocking out the noise and focusing on the things he can control like getting ready for the Spring League in Austin, at the end of the month.

"It's not just coming throwing and working out, that's great, that's part of it, that's step one but, but then there's the film there's the coverage there's everything else, that comes with being in the building," he said. "That's what the spring league is giving me a little bit of, a practice setting, when you have five o-lineman and a tight-end connected, and you're doing run plays and carrying out your fakes, and throwing with guys getting covered, and that's the biggest thing. I think the only thing I can do, is just block it off. If something pops up it pos up, but if not and I don't get the opportunity then I'm going to play in the CFL and it's going to be fine."

The Spring League begins March 28th in Austin.
