PLAYERS: Johnny Manziel

Via Pro Football Zone:

Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin told reporters that quarterback Johnny Manziel will announce whether he’s going to enter the NFL draft prior to the Aggies' bowl game.

“We haven’t had that conversation,” Sumlin said, via ESPN.com. “My job is to get him all the facts that we can get him. We’ll have that discussion after the Missouri game, certainly during the bowl preparation. I’m sure the announcement will be made at that time.”

Texas A&M's regular season will end on Nov. 30 and the earliest bowl game for an SEC team is Dec. 30. That means Manziel will have about 30 days to make his final decision.

I think Manziel could use another year of college ball, but I feel like he’ll declare since he doesn’t have much else to prove.

Can Johnny Manziel Get a Little Help Please?
