It looks like Johnny Manziel will have some time to reflect on his crazy behavior and possibly refocus his career. The Cleveland Browns officially waved 23-year-old Manziel, the team announced Friday (March 11).
It wasn’t unexpected … most league insiders thought the Browns had grown weary of Manziel’s antics — including a grand jury investigation into an incident with his ex-GF — and new head coach Hue Jackson had been publicly lukewarm on the idea of keeping Johnny around.
As for Manziel … he’s seemed completely unaffected by the career uncertainty, hitting up hot spots in Miami, Vegas, and L.A. all in the last month and partying with the likes of Scott Disick.
It’s been reported up to three teams are still interested in subsidizing Manziel’s club hopping … and he told TMZ Sports he’s completely dedicated to football … so we’re guessing this isn’t the last we’ve heard of him.
Manziel was a 22nd pick in the 2014 draft. Per the Brown’s website, the quarterback started six games last season, but played in nine games total; with seven touchdowns and five interceptions, 1,500 yards thrown and added 230 rushing yards.
On a personal note, the Texas A&M alum has been on rampage of making one bad decision after another. Last month Texas police announced that Manziel was under investigation for the alleged beating of his ex-girlfriend. His father says Manziel needs to go to rehab.
