Manziel suits up for spring after busy off-season

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel is back on the field with his teammates at spring practice.

But the whirlwind season he had last year brings up the question of just how long the quarterback will remain an Aggie.

The quarterback became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy in 2012. He will be eligible for the NFL draft after the 2013 season since he redshirted his first season in College Station.

He knows questions about the possibility of leaving school early are inevitable. But he's not thinking about that right now, saying he's happy where he is.

Manziel is however taking steps to guard his future, and said after Tuesday's practice that he is in the process of getting an insurance policy to protect him in case of injury.
