In need of a third QB, is there a better option for Pats than Johnny Manziel?

Jesse, I wrote on the reasons I could see the Patriots signing quarterback Johnny Manziel, and the reasons I think they might shy away from it, last week. Here is that piece. The more I've thought about it, I wouldn't be surprised if it happens, with one huge caveat: The team would have to be at a high comfort level with him off the field as it relates to allegations of domestic violence (a 2016 domestic violence charge was dismissed). If there is a high comfort level by the Patriots with that, I see limited risk for the team in bringing Manziel aboard at a time when there are 90 players on the roster and there is still a need for a third/developmental quarterback. At the least, Manziel could be part of the offseason program, he'd be on a minimum-level contract, and who knows if he would even make it to training camp? But it wouldn't hurt to take a closer look at him on a day-to-day basis in the offseason program to determine if there was something there to work with further.
