INDIANAPOLIS — Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel said Friday he had made a connection with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Speaking with the media at the NFL combine, Manziel said that Brady reached out to him after he texted the New England signal-caller.

“€œFor him to reach back out to me after I extended a text message to him was extremely cool,”€ Manziel said. “€œIt was kind of really funny conversation at first, and worked our way into a little more serious conversation. It was really nice, and very thankful for him to be able to extend a hand out to me in the situation that I’€™m in.

“The big thing was just enjoy the process. He kind of gave me a little joke — if I can teach him how to run like I can, he’€™ll do anything in the world for me. It was pretty funny hearing it from him.”
