Manziel said that even if Kaepernick is not going to start, he is still good enough to be part of the roster. As for Kaepernick, well, his situation is a bit more complicated. Both free agent quarterbacks are dealing with separate issues, but find themselves without a home.

Many of Kaepernick's proponents are arguing for him to get a shot in the National Football League and now it looks like his list of supporters might have an interesting name.

Manziel coaching in the ACC one day probably isn't out of the realm of possibilities.

He also added that although the said player may have been down for a couple of years, he has a certain track record that can prove what he is capable of when it comes to going into the field and playing his best. So I think that'd be my route. "I think once all the other stuff quiets down a little bit, he'll be OK".

Manziel believes that Kaepernick is good enough to be a part of the NFL. In 12 games, he completed 59.2 percent of his passes for 2,241 yards for 16 touchdowns, four interceptions, and a 90.7 passer rating.

Still, he can't get a job.

The former A&M QB has a marginal amount of coaching history. Kaepernick has also been connected to teams like the Seahawks and Ravens.

Manziel gave plenty of thoughtful responses on the panel. Though he met with Saints coach Sean Payton this offseason, that meeting didn't lead to a job. Manziel has not played since he was with the Cleveland Browns in 2015. Even he acknowledged that he deserves the blame, saying in July, "I know the situation that I put myself in."

The NFL suspended Manziel for the first four games last season in accordance with its substance-abuse policy, though he was not on an NFL team after the Browns released him in March 2016.
