Sounds like the Browns are getting ready to cut Johnny Manziel
The Cleveland Browns can’t be any more clear about quarterback Johnny Manziel’s future with the team -- at least not until Monday.
That’s the first day NFL teams are allowed to cut players. Until then, though, we have this statement, issued Tuesday by Browns Executive Vice President Sashi Brown:
“We’ve been clear about expectations for our players on and off 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. His status with our team will be addressed when permitted by league rules. We will have no further comment at this time.”
Most recently, Fort Worth police were dispatched to look into a dispute between Manziel and an ex-girlfriend last weekend. A preliminary investigation determined “a possible assault” may have occurred.
Manziel is 2-6 as a starting quarterback, completing 57% of his passes with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions for a 74.4 quarterback rating.
