Johnny Manziel during the game vs Rice. Fake signing Autographs

Patriots QB Tom Brady was asked about Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel and his antics on the field.

In a win over Rice last Saturday, Manziel made money gestures, and signing autograph gestures after a big play, and a couple of scores. Manziel was suspended the first half for “breaking the spirit” of the NCAA rule that doesn’t allow players to sign autographs for money. Manziel was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct after he taunted a Rice player, and trashed talked with him after an Aggie touchdown.

In an interview on CNBC’s Squawk Box on Wednesday, host Joe Kernen awkwardly asked Brady about Johnny Manziel.

You’re probably going to play against Johnny Football one day. If he starts … is he young? That’s what he is, the showboating, the … but I don’t ever remember … what’s the biggest thing you’ve ever done in terms of flaunting? I think I’ve maybe seen a fist pump. That’s about it, isn’t it?”

Brady’s response: “I get pretty emotional. I have a lot of respect for the teammates, for my teammates, for my organization, and certainly for other guys in the NFL. There’s not a guy playing in the NFL who hasn’t earned the right to be here, and who isn’t supremely talented. He’s probably been the best athlete in his high school class, in his elementary school class. So when you look across the ball you have respect for those guys, and you treat them with respect because football’s a physical game. And as RKK(Patriots owner Robert Kraft) would say, if you’re a turd, it’s going to come back to you.”
