Buccaneers love them some Johnny Football

In the past several weeks the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been tied into rumors heavily with Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. That has led to some speculation that the Bucs might have an ulterior motive.

Manziel, nicknamed “Johnny Football”, might be the player with the highest profile in this year’s draft. He’s an attention-getter on and off the field. General manager Jason Licht said Tuesday that the Bucs won’t be making their draft decisions based on the marketability of any player.

“In terms of fan interest and selling tickets, we’re lucky that we work for the Glazers,” Licht said. “They hired (Licht and coach Lovie Smith) to make what’s the best football decision. We would be basing the situation on whether or not he makes us a better football team.” 

“He’s a Heisman Trophy winner,” Licht said. “A lot of the situations he’s been in, really you can’t blame him for. If I were young and had a Heisman Trophy on my mantle, then I’d probably be in a lot more trouble than the next guy. I think we’re just going to make the best football decision, what’s best for our football team. I think Lovie and his staff can handle the rest of it.”

Could you imagine Johnny Football in Tampa?  WOW
