Johnny Manziel

This is no surprise, basically everyone knew the Cleveland Browns would cut Johnny Manziel it was just a matter of when.  Today the Browns released a statement about their issues with Manziel.

via NY Post:

“We’ve been clear about expectations for our players on the field. Johnny’s continual involvement in incidents that run counter to those expectations undermines the hard work of his teammates and the reputation of our organization,” Browns executive vice president Sashi Brown said in the statement.

“His status with our team will be addressed when permitted by league rules. We will have no further comment at this time.”

Under league rules, Manziel cannot be cut until Feb. 8, the day following the Super Bowl. However, according to ESPN, salary cap math means the Browns will wait until March 9, when the NFL calendar flips to a new year and the cap goes up. Releasing Manziel will count $4.6 million against the cap.


Manziel has been caught on numerous videos partying and drinking after attending rehab for alcohol.  He was also involved in a domestic incident with his girlfriend.  The likely last straw was another incident with his now ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley where police were once again called.

There’s reports that Manziel wants to join the Dallas Cowboys and although owner Jerry Jones is fond of him, there hasn’t been any indication yet that he will take the plunge.
