Continued: Souhan: Zimmer must decide if Manziel can play, even if he's unorthodox

The last time a young baseball player was as good and as flamboyant as Manziel, he turned into Bryce Harper, whose big-league résumé is better than most Hall of Famers at his age.

If Zimmer doesn’t like Manziel’s mechanics or velocity, so be it. If he’s writing off Manziel because he might be a “celebrity-man guy,” as Zimmer said, then Zimmer needs to study NFL history, and maybe download some Drake.
