Saints Have No Interest In Signing Johnny Manziel
A conversation between Saints head coach Sean Payton and troubled former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel during Super Bowl week in Houston led to speculation last week New Orleans was interesting in signing him.
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported the meeting, even going as far as tweeting a Manziel signing in New Orleans would make sense.
Today, Jason Cole of Bleacher Report says Manziel will not be joining the Saints.
It shouldn't come as a surprise. Payton notoriously hates distractions. Manziel, who has a history of drinking, drug use and a domestic abuse case, brings plenty of media attention, regardless of where he is.
