Johnny Manziel says playing for the Cowboys would be a "folktale in the correct direction"

It will never happen -- Johnny Manziel in a Cowboys' uniform -- but a guy can have dreams no matter how far-fetched. The Texas A&M quarterback is expected to be drafted in the top five, possibly No. 1 overall. The Cowboys draft either 16th or 17th depending on the outcome of a coin flip with the Baltimore Ravens.

Manziel admits he grew up a Cowboys fan. He has attended a handful of Cowboys games at AT&T Stadium the past two years.

“I got a chance to meet Jerry," Manziel said. "I didn’t know him. To get a chance to sit there and talk with him – the guy is an absolute football fanatic. I really enjoyed meeting him. Until my mouth was sore from talking, and my ear was tired from hearing all of it, we sat there in his suite at Cowboys Stadium and talked for hours. It was awesome to see how he really is, how passionate he is about everything. Me growing up as a Cowboys fan – I was born at halftime of a Cowboys game – that would almost be a folktale in the correct direction. We'd have to call that Johnny something else. I don't know what it would be."
