“No,” O’Brien said to a loud cheer. “Sorry.”
“We spent a lot of time with Johnny (Manziel) and I had great meetings with him,” O’Brien said. “He is a bright guy and I really enjoyed watching him play in college on film and enjoyed talking with him.”
O’Brien was speaking at St. Thomas to deliver a speech about "How To Build A Winning Team." It appears although O’Brien respects Manziel, Manziel didn’t fit the model of the team he’s trying to build in Houston.
We have a vision for our football team and we stuck to that vision
," O'Brien. "
Every decision we made in the draft we felt led to that vision
and we’ll see if that vision turns out the way we believe it will in whatever, a year, two years, three years. It was what we believed in and we stuck with it and we stayed disciplined in the draft and Johnny’s in a great situation in Cleveland.”
