Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he told quarterback Tony Romo not to worry about the Johnny Manziel talk before the draft.
“I just told Tony, ‘Just so you know, it looks like there’s going to be a few things written, some visibility with the media, but that’s really a real unlikely thing that you’d spend any time looking at,’ ” Jones said he told Romo.
He said the subject came up a few days before the draft, when Jones noticed some prominent mock drafts connected the Cowboys with Manziel.
“I think there’d been some speculation,” Jones said. “I think one of these guys came out with a mock draft or what have you.”
