When rookie second-round pick DeShone Kizer takes the field for the Browns on Sunday against the Steelers, he will be the team’s 27th different starting quarterback since 1999, when the team returned to the NFL. And out of those previous 26 starters, only one has a winning record as the Browns’ quarterback: Brian Hoyer went 10-6 during his two years in Cleveland. Naturally, the team chose not to re-sign him after the 2014 season and instead anointed Johnny Manziel as the franchise’s future.

The Browns released Manziel after the 2015 season and he’s been out of football ever since.

Johnny Manziel is back at it again, just days after he was lucky enough to walk away from an alleged hit-and-run accident in Hollywood, the NFL bad boy has arrived at Coachella.
Manziel is at the music festival with his friend Ryan Silverstein, who was also the same guy driving the vehicle that crashed into a light pole on the Sunset Strip around 10.45pm last Saturday, according to TMZ Sports.
The former Cleveland Browns quarterback, who posted the photo of him and Silverstein at Coachella on Snapchat, was a passenger in the car when his pal Silverstein crashed.
Both men then allegedly fled the scene and were picked up by suspended Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon.

Could this kid be a bigger jagbag?  He is blowing through what is left of his $8 million contract, even without being on an NFL roster.  Between claiming he is living with Von Miller  and supposedly living with Josh Gordon, this dude is doing everything to stay in the limelight except playing quarterback anymore.  What a shame…still.

Johnny Manziel lied to team about video that surfaced last weekend, asked friend to lie

CLEVELAND – Johnny Manziel lied to the Browns after a video surfaced of him partying at a club, FOXSports NFL Insider Jay Glazer reports.

The warning signs were there from the beginning.  A lot of NFL experts believed that while Johnny Manziel had enough talent to succeed as a pro, there were plenty of red flags to insist he lacked the maturity.  He was too young, too impulsive and too in love with the college party life to take on the responsibility of leading men to battle on Sundays.  Never has that been more clear than with the most recent incident.

A video surfaced of the second-year quarterback partying during the Cleveland Browns bye week.  This apparently after the team expressed the desire that he hang around the team facility and lay low for once.  The fact alone that he ignored them was a bad sign, but more information has come to light that really puts his benching and his likely dismissal from the team down the road into perspective.

“As if Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel hadn’t already given the team more than enough reasons to never trust him again, here’s another. According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Manziel lied to the Browns about the circumstances surrounding the photos that surfaced following his bye-week excursion to Texas.

Per Glazer, Manziel not only told the team that the photos weren’t taken over the weekend but also recruited others to vouch for the falsehood.”

That doesn’t just signal the fact that Manziel has his priorities in the wrong place, it shows he lacks a degree of honesty that great quarterbacks need to get teammates and coaches to trust him.  For all the good things he did in college, it’s apparent he probably left before he learned the final ingredient to being a winner:  responsibility.

Hard as it is to admit, NFL teams don’t like players that show intent to deceiver for their own selfish gains.  Johnny Manziel already had enough doubts before he even took a snap in Cleveland.  With the growing list of problems he’s caused since making the jump last year, he’ll have a stigma around him that is almost impossible to erase.

Thing is, it’s his own fault.

Tyler Lockett’s a versatile threat, but he gets lost in a loaded receiver class. Meanwhile, Bud Dupree’s allure is more about potential than production. Daniel Jeremiah redistributes pre-draft hype.
