Former NFL running back Jamal Lewis thinks Johnny Manziel has more in common with Tim Tebow than just a Heisman Trophy — suggesting that the Texas A&M quarterback can look forward to having a mediocre pro football career as a signal caller.
TMZ caught up with the former Baltimore Ravens' workhorse at LAX where Lewis — an Atlanta native — claimed he is a huge Falcons fan but not so big on Johnny Football's future in the NFL.
"He's the next Tim Tebow," said Lewis about Manziel hinting that he plans on going pro after his sophomore season.
"He's a good college quarterback," said the nine-year pro who helped the Ravens win the 2003 Super Bowl. But when it came to Manziel bringing his larger-than-life antics to the NFL, Lewis was less complimentary.
"I don't think he'll do good on the field or off of it."
Hear that Jacksonville Jaguars?
