Johnny Manziel really likes wearing popular quarterbacks' jerseys from forgettable stints with a team.

Favre was a second-round pick of the Atlanta Falcons in the 1991 NFL Draft. He played two games for the team in 1991 and was 0-4 passing with two interceptions. After going to the playoffs with the Denver Broncos in 2011, Tebow was traded to the New York Jets before the 2012 season. That year, he was 6-8 passing for 39 yards and ran 32 times for 102 yards.
After the 1991 season, Favre was traded to the Green Bay Packers and his career took off from there. Since playing for the Jets, Tebow hasn't taken another regular season snap in the NFL. He was cut by the New England Patriots before the 2013 regular season.
Here's to hoping that Manziel has a Johnny Unitas San Diego Chargers jersey or a Warren Moon Kansas City Chiefs jersey somewhere too.
Manziel and Tebow hung out together at Monday night's BCS Championship Game. Both appeared on ESPN's coverage and Tebow was recently hired by the network to be an analyst for the SEC Network. Do you think Manziel asked Tebow to sign his jersey?
The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner declared for the NFL Draft on Wednesday. He's expected to go work with quarterbacks coach George Whitfield in San Diego to prepare for being a potential first-round selection.
