NFL Notes: Johnny Manziel, Saints & Vikings

Johnny Manziel

Following the news that Johnny Manziel has been suspended four games for violation the NFL substance abuse policy, ESPN’s Jim Trotter mentions that Manziel could also face a minimum six-game suspension under the league’s domestic violence policy, depending on how things go with his pending court case.

Saints

Saints QB Drew Brees mentioned that he isn’t concerned about the fact that they’ll have to rely on younger receivers in 2016 including Willie Snead, Brandon Coleman and second-round pick Michael Thomas.

“I am not worried about the inexperience, if you are just talking about years and games played,” Brees said, via The Advocate. “I feel like the time on task between all of us is pretty significant when you are talking about the practice reps and the time that we spend away from this facility together. I think they’re quick studies; they’re all hard-working guys that are very smart, intelligent and hungry.”

Vikings

  • The Vikings announced Thursday that they’ve promoted pro scout Scott Kuhn to director of analytics and named Anne Doepner their director of football administration.
