The Dallas News reports:
As soon as Texas A&M head football coach Kevin Sumlin took the media muzzle off his freshman quarterback, Johnny Manziel went from a mystery man to a front-page mainstay who even made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.
But now Manziel seems ready to start cutting back on the substantial number of interviews he's been doing of late. During an interview with reporters from USA Today and the San Antonio Express-News last week, Manziel said he's talked to Texas A&M media relations officials about a potential self-imposed media ban.
"I was just talking to [Texas A&M assistant media relations director] Brad [Marquardt] just the other day about media stuff and thinking about getting to the point where it was during last season to where I didn’t do anything," Manziel said. "I told him, 'Be very picky with who I do things with from now on.' Before I was just like, OK, I want people to hear my story and hear what kind of person I am. And now with me getting out there, I kind of get mixed around and tossed with whatever the media wants to portray me as. So now I feel like I have people who enjoy sitting down and talking with me and interviewing me, and I’m OK with that. But there are some people that don’t have [the] best intentions."
