NFL Notes: Johnny Manziel, Trent Richardson, Draft & Texans


Johnny Manziel

Broncos OLB Von Miller mentioned that if the decision were up to him, the Broncos would have already signed QB Johnny Manziel.

“If I had to make my decision on it, he would already be with the Broncos” Miller said, via Travis Brown of “But we’ve got guys in the front office that make those decisions, and they’ve put us in the championship with those decisions.

Trent Richardson

Trent Richardson told the Jeff Zrbiec of the Baltimore Sun earlier in the week that he expects to sign with the Ravens in time to start offseason workouts on April 18.

“I can’t wait,” Richardson said. “I feel like I did when I left home from high school to go to college. To me, it’s about earning an opportunity that they gave him. I’m in a position to earn a spot on the team, a chance to actually be that guy. I know there’s going to be a lot of competition. I know there’s going to be a lot of fighting among ourselves, but we’re all out there for the same thing. We all want to try and get better, we all want to be that guy. But at the same time, I’m coming in and I’m ready to work.”

Richardson added that he still has a lot to prove and plans to give it his all.

I’ve got a lot to prove to myself,” Richardson said. “It’s not about everybody else this time, it’s about me. I’m really giving it my all. It’s enough talk. We’ve been doing a lot of talking. Now it’s just time to put up.”
