Johnny Manziel went to Brady for some advice and Brady delivered, but Brady also wanted Manziel’s help in running.
Manziel talked a little about what was said between him and Brady during his media interviews at the NFL combine.
“He kind of gave me a little joke: If I teach him how to run like I can, he’ll do anything in the world for me. So it was pretty funny hearing it from him,” Manziel said.
Johnny Manziel has been training with private coach George Whitfield, who has worked with Cam Newton, and Andrew Luck, in San Diego.
Whitfield commented how much it meant to Johnny Manziel to hear from Tom Brady.
“I didn’t have anything to do with that connection. I know they got to touch base,” Whitfield said. “I think Tom just basically passed on some encouraging words. Johnny, and rightfully so, is a fan, as we all are. Imagine a young baseball player getting a chance to talk to Derek Jeter. That’s effectively what Johnny getting a chance to talk to Tom Brady would be like. I think it’s smart when you’re that young.”
