Saw a ProFootballTalk article on the disaster that is Johnny Manziel’s career so far. Apparently Manziel isn’t trying, and he’s a complete party boy. One of his Browns teammates claimed Manziel was a “100% joke” as a rookie:
“During the draft process, not one person interviewed by the team said he was going to grow up,” a source directly involved in the drafting of Manziel told ESPN.com. “You can’t blame Johnny. This is who he is. The team knew that.”
One of the defining moments of Manziel’s rookie season was after his injury, resulting in his inability to play the season finale. Apparently he was incapacitated after a party he threw and the Browns made up stuff to account for his absence from practice the next day:
It came to a head for the Browns on the final weekend of the regular season, when he didn’t show up at the facility on Saturday morning for treatment. Per the report, team security went to Manziel’s apartment and found the player “drunk off his ass.” The team put out the word that he was “late” for treatment on an injured hamstring; per the report, players didn’t see him at all until it was time to fly to Baltimore for the regular-season finale.
Pathetic. We used to believe in J.F. Football before, now he’s simply Jamarcus Manziel. Actually, we didn’t believe in him judging from a conversation I had with my supervisor. Oh well. Same result. Except Jamarcus Russell played for three years before washing out. Manziel has started two games. Terrible.
Maybe Jerry Jones can pick him up after the Browns cut him.
