Heisman winner Johnny Manziel visits Raiders

Oakland, CA, United States (4E Sports) – Former Heisman winner Johnny Manziel met with the Oakland Raiders Sunday and visited team facilities Monday.

A source said Manziel flew to Oakland Sunday morning following his appearance Saturday night at the NCAA basketball tournament Final Four games in Arlington, Texas.

This will be the second visit for Manziel, a projected first-round pick. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner already visited with the New England Patriots this past week.

The Raiders own the fifth overall selection in next month’s NFL draft. Oakland acquired veteran Matt Schaub in a trade last month with the Houston Texans, but the Raiders could still potentially be looking for a long-term solution at quarterback.

The Raiders went 4-12 last season as Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin split time at quarterback.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie acknowledged last month at the NFL owners meetings that Pryor likely will be released or traded soon.
