Patriots attend Texas A&M pro day where Johnny Manziel threw

But there was also someone else there of note: Johnny Manziel.

The Patriots were in attendance at Texas A&M's pro day today at the team's indoor practice facility.

The teams were there to see the array of talented players, including touted wide receiver Christian Kirk.

According to a source, the Patriots spoke with Manziel both before the workout, as well as after the session. The former Aggie is now 25-years-old and a few years removed from NFL action with the Cleveland Browns but the troubled athlete has dedicated himself to once again becoming a force to be reckoned with on the football field.

Manziel threw to Aggies receivers during the event, which came less than a week after the 2012 Heisman Trophy victor took part in the University of San Diego's pro day. If Manziel shows he can still play, bringing him onboard would be a low-risk move for Bill Belichick that could provide the Patriots with insurance should Tom Brady suffer an injury in 2018.

The Patriots were also reportedly the first team Manziel met with ahead of the 2014 draft. Representatives from the Patriots - as well as the Giants and Jets - were in attendance.

In two years in the NFL, Manziel started eight games and went 2-6, compiling 1,675 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions.
