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.

#BillyManziel has gone viral

According to ESPN, Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was seen wearing a unique disguise at a Las Vegas nightclub.

Sources saw Manziel sporting an odd outfit — a blond wig, a fake mustache, glasses and a hoodie. And he introduced himself as “Billy.”

After being placed in the NFL Concussion Protocol last Wednesday, it was reported by multiple outlets throughout the weekend that Manziel was seen at a Las Vegas casino rather than being at home resting and rehabilitating from the concussion he reportedly suffered in a 17-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 27.

You can’t make this stuff up! I can only imagine the shit he is going to get from his teammates if and when he returns to the Cleveland Browns locker room. The Browns recently fired Mike Pettine, what does it take to fire Johnny Football? I mean #BillyManziel!

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.

Johnny Manziel pulled over after domestic argument, alcohol involved

The topsy-turvy NFL career of Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel took another turn on Friday when the ABC news affiliate in Cleveland reported he was involved in a domestic argument earlier this week, and alcohol was involved.

Manziel, the second-year Browns quarterback, was involved in an argument with his girlfriend from Texas Christian University, Coleen Crowley, newsnet5.com reported. The incident started at 6 p.m. on Monday, according to the report. According to the police report, Crowley accused him of pushing her head into a car window. According to the police report both Manziel, who spent about 10 weeks in rehab this offseason, and Crowley were drinking but not charged. According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Manziel told police he had two drinks, and his girlfriend was impaired.

The newsnet5.com story, citing the police report, said a witness called police after Manziel’s white Nissan used the shoulder to pass her at a high speed. The couple was arguing and Crowley attempted to exit the vehicle while they were on the road. This is from newsnet5.com:

In the report, Crowley told police Manziel pushed her head into a window. She wanted her cell phone because she was concerned about her safety and said she just wanted to return to Texas.

The report stated police did see an abrasion on Crowley’s arm but later determined that the abrasion was from Manziel’s attempt to keep her from getting out of the vehicle while it was on the road.

On Friday evening, Manziel tweeted an explanation:

Police determined the couple wasn’t intoxicated enough to be charged, Crowley didn’t want to press charges, so they were allowed to leave the scene in Manziel’s car.

Crowley put out a statement on her Instagram account:

“J & I are good. I appreciate the people who stopped to check on us and call the police, I could see how it may have looked. Anytime anyone sees a guy and a girl arguing on the side of a road they should definitely stop, you never know what that could be. Fortunately it was just an argument, it was private, and we are all good!”

The report is troubling in a few ways. Manziel spent time in rehab this offseason for an unspecified reason, and he has asked that the circumstances surrounding that stay in rehab remain private. Manziel’s partying before this year has been often discussed on social media. He was released from rehab in April.

Browns general manager Ray Farmer released a statement, via Cabot:

“We were aware of the situation,” Farmer said in the statement. “It is a matter that we take seriously and have expressed our concerns to Johnny directly. Those conversations will remain private and we will refrain from further comment at this time.”

Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland said that a team spokesman said Manziel will be active for Sunday’s game.

When he was out of rehab he released a statement apologizing to many, including the Browns. This is part of the apology:

“I owe private apologies to a lot of people that I disappointed but a very public one to the Browns organization and the fans that I let down. I take full responsibility for my actions and it’s my intention to work very hard to regain everyone’s trust and respect.

“I understand that will take time and will only happen through what I do and not what I say.”

Manziel got a chance to start in Week 2 because of an injury to starter Josh McCown, and led the Browns to a win. Many thought Manziel should have been given a chance to start for Cleveland going forward, but the Browns stuck with McCown. But Manziel’s NFL future looked much brighter than it had for months.

After this latest incident, it appears again that Manziel might have to start building up trust again in the Browns organization.
