Johnny Manziel has reverted back to Johnny Football—or maybe the persona never actually left the guy? That’s fine and all, but if he thinks that NFL teams will deal with that type of shit, he may find out real soon the reality of his party boy ways.
After news broke that
Manziel Football was partying at a casino in Vegas on Saturday night—the day before his Cleveland Browns were to play their final game of the regular season, which Johnny was missing because of a concussion—there’s another incident that the embattled QB is involved in, and it might just be the final straw for him.
That’s because the kid was a no-show for his concussion treatment on Sunday morning, when he was supposed to be at the team’s practice facility going through tests to see his progress from a blow to the head.
Addressing the report, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam didn’t exactly give the kid a rousing endorsement, per Cleveland.com:
It is my understanding that he was not there this morning,” said Haslam.
He explained, “When you are in the concussion protocol, you don’t come to the stadium; you just go to Berea. When you go through concussion protocol you don’t come to the games,” he said. “I’m not exactly sure where Johnny is. Haven’t talked to him. I know our football people will be on top of that.”
Then he added, “We do have the second pick in the draft.”
That last little piece of info came after Haslam was asked about Manziel’s future with the Browns, which, at this point, looks to be all but over. In fact, it should be taken as a warning sign from the quarterback that the team is absolutely looking at bringing in another signal-caller, so, yeah, money signs may be out of style in Cleveland in 2016.
Adding to all of this was a report from sports talk radio host Tony Grossi, who said that Manziel was kicked out of a meeting last week after showing up sloshed, per Twitter:
The team denied all that, but the fact of the matter is Manziel was already a sinking ship going down in a hurry, so all of these latest events seem like it’s the end of the road for him as an option at QB for most NFL teams—so cue the Boyz II Men.
