Johnny Manziel to Houston Texans Billboards Are Starting To Pop Up

Johnny Manziel No. 1 pick 2014 NFL Draft

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Johnny Manziel has been one of the top stars in college football over the last couple of years, but now he’s decided to take his talents to the NFL. It’s the right career move, because let’s face it, his stock really can’t get any higher coming out of college. Many big boards, including ESPN’s, have Manziel near the top of the draft – a place where some argue he shouldn’t be. However, we all know that teams will jump at the chance to land a franchise QB these days.

One of the teams in the ‘Manziel Sweepstakes’ is the Houston Texans, who own the No. 1 pick. Good ol’ Mel Kiper Jr. has Johnny Football staying in Texas and going to the Texans and it appears that some share his thoughts. Check out his billboard, which figures to be the first of many in Houston:

Manziel to Texans

So the all important question – is it better for football to have Manziel stay in his home state?

Texas is obviously a state known for great football and I certainly understand the thought process of keeping a huge star like Manziel in it, but it’s really not that big of a deal. The Texans don’t need Johnny Football to sell tickets. They’re a team just a year removed from the playoffs and even though 2013 was a train wreck, you know the fans will be back at Reliant Stadium no matter what in 2014.

Would Manziel ensure a few more butts in seats? Sure, but he’s not a player the Texans ‘have’ to have. I think it would be better for football if Manziel went to team in need of a boost like the Jacksonville Jaguars.
