Report: Saints show interest in Johnny Manziel

METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - The Saints off-season took another wild turn Thursday when a report came out that Sean Payton was interested in former Cleveland Browns and Heisman Trophy winner, Johnny Manziel.

According to Ian Rapaport of the NFL Network, Payton and Manziel were spotted having breakfast together during Super Bowl week and discussed a return to football.

Manziel was not in the NFL in 2016. He also had major off-field issues during his time in Cleveland.

It's no secret, the Saints are looking to find a successor to 38-year-old quarterback Drew Brees. Brees is going into the final year of his contract.
