With the 22nd overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Cleveland Browns selected quarterback Johnny Manziel from Texas A&M. Browns fans across the nation were stoked about this selection two years ago. They now would have a tremendous athlete at quarterback that could potentially hold the Browns future in his hands. Today (Friday March 11, 2016) the Cleveland Browns have waived Johnny Manziel. Manziel played two season with the Browns playing 15 games, eight of those he was the starting QB. With his eight career starts the team went 2-6, and Johnny ended his career with the Browns with a 74.4 passer rating.
The dream of Manziel leading the Browns to something great was soon shattered. His off-field struggles limited his success. From the night the Browns drafted him, the partying began. He struggled to keep up with the partying and football at the same time, causing his to miss walk-throughs and cost him his starting position for certain games. Last Manziel attended rehab from January up until April to help him with his struggles. He lied to his coaches about videos that were found of him during this season making him the third string QB, until the Browns had no other choice but to play him. Johnny is now facing an investigation for a domestic assault incident that was said to of happened in late January. Sashi Brown says that these incidents “undermine the hard work of his teammates and the reputation of our organization.”
