The Arizona Cardinals and Johnny Manziel may not be a fit for Bruce Arians offense, but it would be a perfect fit for the NFC West division of running style quarterbacks.
Manziel has been projected to go to many teams including number one to the Houston Texans, but that is not likely to happen seeing that a quarterback only 6’0 is to much of a reach.
There are two teams that could cash in on the hype of Johnny football: The first has him going 16 to Jerry Jones and the Cowboys: This move only makes since to one person and thats Jerry, the opportunistic owner would sure use this opportunity to sale some tickets and pack out that beautiful stadium he purchased.
Jerry will also see it as a counter move to battle the Houston Texans for Texas supremacy after the Texans take Jadeveon Clowney number one and all the press and Texas fans flock to them, to Jerry the state of Texas aint big enough for two America’s Teams.
The other team cashing in on Johnny football would be the Jacksonville Jaguars, which have been pretty quite speaking about Manziel at number three. Jacksonville can also look to sale tickets to help revenue for a team that has not sold out a building in quite some time, and Manziel would put butts in the seats for at least one season, and regardless of this teams record the fans will show for Johnny football.
As for the Arizona Cardinals they are most likely not going to get an opportunity to draft Johnny football at number 20, but if they had the chance, one could wonder would they roll the dice and make the NFC West an all running style quarterback division along with their defenses battling, that would make for great television all season long.
