It was quite an up-and-down 2015 season for Johnny Manziel. The Browns’ quarterback was given the opportunity to play quite a bit for Cleveland and, while he showed flashes of the on-field brilliance that won him the Heisman Trophy in college, he was unable to stop his off-field antics from getting in the way.
Manziel ended up throwing for 1,500 yards passing with seven touchdowns and five interceptions to go along with 230 rushing yards. But it appears as though his days as a Brown are over after two seasons — with signs pointing at him ending up in Dallas next year — as the Browns’ organization is assuredly tired of seeing Manziel’s name coming up in headlines unrelated to his play on the field.
The most recent incident involved Manziel’s whereabouts on or around January 2, the night before Cleveland’s final game of the season against the Steelers. There were reports that Manziel was spotted at a Las Vegas casino, even though he posted an Instagram photo of himself at home with his dog. Although Manziel was inactive, he was still required to show up at the team facility because he was in concussion protocol.
