Texans officials are not saying much about their meeting with Manziel, but did say that they did not hold a private workout with the quarterback. General Manager Rick Smith told HoustonTexans.com that they will bring in Manziel to Houston for another meeting before the NFL Draft.

Manziel is said to be one the top quarterback prospects this year along with Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater and UCF’s Blake Bortles, who both held their pro days earlier this month.
