Chip Kelly says Manziel broke his heart by decommitting from Oregon.
Pardon Chip Kelly for waxing poetic on college football's most scrutinized prospect, but the Eagles' coach just couldn't help but get caught up in Manziel-mania ahead of the draft.
When pressed for his thoughts on Manziel, Kelly couldn't help but reminisce on what could've been had Johnny Football remained committed to Oregon instead of later pledging to Texas A&M.
“When I coached at Oregon, he was tailor made for [the system],” Kelly said to CSNPhilly.
When asked specifically whether the Eagles would consider drafting Manziel, Kelly said, wryly, “We have an interest in anyone that's draft eligible this year.”
