Johnny Manziel has not only lost his starting job to Josh McCown, he’s been demoted all the way to the third string quarterback behind Austin Davis.  The move came after videos surfaced of Manziel partying in Texas last weekend during the Cleveland Browns bye week.

“We all know what happened and what got put out there, and it led to much disappointment, frustration, however you want to term it,” Pettine said Tuesday evening on his weekly “The Mike Pettine Show” on the Cleveland Browns Radio Network. “It was something we felt had violated the trust that we had put in him for the bye coming out of the Pittsburgh game.”

Pettine said he, offensive coordinator John DeFilippo and quarterbacks coach Kevin O’Connell had spoken with Manziel before the bye to make clear they expected he would handle himself “the right way.”

“The bye week would be … wouldn’t use the word ‘test,’ but that’s essentially what it ended up being,” Pettine said.

Manziel has been on a tight rope since he spent 10 weeks in a treatment facility reportedly for alcohol during the offseason.  He was also recently questioned by police after he was reportedly driving dangerously on the highway. His girlfriend alleged that he attacked her and police say they smelled alcohol on his breath but no charges were filed.  It remains apparent that Manziel’s time with the Browns will soon come to an end.
