Zimmer sees flags around Manziel
The spectacle surrounding Johnny Manziel's pro day last week and the celebrity status of the former Texas A&M quarterback seem to concern Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, who said "flags" popped up when the team met with Manziel for a private workout.

Only thing I would read into this is that the coach wants Manziel - bad. If you wanted someone else, you would keep you mouth shut so that one of the people that drafts ahead of you will waste their pick on this guy, thereby making it more likely the guy you want will still be available.
Or the coach is really dumb.

I’m no Manziel fan by any strech but I’m thinking if he were of a different race these concerns would not be such an issue.
Tim Tebow kicks back with his popcorn and smiles a knowing smile...
LOL! Tebow only wishes he hard an arm like Manziel.
Undersized to be a pro quarterback nowadays.
Or maybe Manuel told the Vikings he won’t play for them if they draft him
Manziel. Hate auto correct.
Two words — FRan Tarkenton Part DeuX
If he had an Aggie son.. that is. ;-]
He’s got basically the same issues list as RGIII (run first QB lacking the size to make that style “safe”, not terribly accurate in the pocket, and an attitude that looks like it will make him very frustrating to coach). Mike Shanahan can attest race didn’t make them not issues.
If only he hadn’t shot that unarmed teenager.
I can only imagine the “flags” that would have surrounded Joe Namath today! lol
When was the last Super Bowl that the moribund Viqueens won? Bingo! The correct answer is “Never.”
I pity the QB who has to live in Al Franken Land amid the Leftist Democrats, Muslims and ice floes. If Manziel has to go to a loser team, at least the Texans are in Texas.
I still think that the Texans will take Johnny Jockstrap with the first pick.
Unlike Tebow, Manziel can throw the ball effectively.
Manziel can be an effective NFL QB but he’s not #1 pick / franchise savior material.
