The Dallas Cowboys are thriving under the leadership of Dak Prescott this NFL season. With the Tony Romo era reaching its end in the Dez Bryant squad, Jerry Jones is expected to seek a good trade for the veteran quarterback. Once this goes through, reports point to a Johnny Manziel contract to the Ezekiel Elliot team by the offseason.

The rise of Dak Prescott has pushed Tony Romo off the starting lineup and into the bench. Given the talent of the veteran quarterback, who could be compared to the likes of Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers, it comes as no surprise that an NFL trade will be on the table soon. Since the Dallas Cowboys seem to have a lot of time left with their rookie leader, talks are widespread over the Johnny Manziel contract on its way soon.

Rumors are rife that Jerry Jones feels it would be safe enough to sign a Johnny Manziel contract by the offseason. Without the massive contract of Tony Romo, the Dallas Cowboys would be financially capable of funding this venture - one that they did not dare take in the past. Speculations point to the success story of Dak Prescott as the motivation for the return of Johnny Football to the NFL. Some fans believe that the rookie quarterback's stunning performance this season prompted the embattled former Cleveland Browns star to get back to shape.

Meanwhile, the reports that Johnny Manziel reached out to Derek Carr of the Oakland Raiders further fueled the possibility of his return to the gridiron. According to the active NFL quarterback, a Johnny Football comeback is certainly a possibility for the former Heisman Trophy winner. The Oakland Raiders star also shared that the struggling free agent still has time to turn things around in his football career.

"He reached out, and I reached back out to him. Anything I can do to help him," shared Derek Carr of his conversation with Johnny Manziel.

The Oakland Raiders star added, "Because he's so talented, so I understand why he was drafted where he was. He could throw, could run, a dynamic athlete, dynamic player. Obviously he just had a little trouble. He's still young though, so hopefully he'll get another chance someday and he'll be alright."

Fans of the Dallas Cowboys are divided on the possibility of a Johnny Manziel contract with the team. While others understand that the impending exit of Tony Romo would require a backup for Dak Prescott, many believe that the former Heisman Trophy winner would simply ruin the team's dynamic. However, others feel that Johnny Football could be ready for his redemption season and the Dallas Cowboys might just be the best football team for his return.
