There is no way Henry Burris would Johnny Manziel $500,000.
“Everything that his agent is trying to use for leverage right now is non-football related. Just to let you know Mr. Agent, that’s not how it works in football. It’s all about what have you done for me lately. Now he brings some police reports, let’s be real here now, he brings counselling, he’s a guy that we don’t know what type of guy we’re going to get because who knows how many weeks he’s going to last here in Canada before something else happens,” Henry Burris told TSN 1200 in Ottawa.
Manziel has not played in a game since 2015 after going 2-6 in eight starts with Cleveland the Browns released him in March 2016. The 25-year-old wants to get back in the NFL.
“They’re trying to get a one-year deal for $500,000 come up here, the fast-food lifestyle where they come in here, make it happen and then jet back to the states,” Burris said. “It’s not going to happen that way.”
Burris finished his long career, which included a stint in the NFL, after winning a Grey Cup in 2016 and knows what it takes to play quarterback in the pros.
