Browns reportedly ‘alarmed’ by Johnny Manziel’s behavior, alleged cocaine picture

The Cleveland Browns have been “alarmed” by some of Johnny Manziel’s behavior and the rookie is losing ground in the starting quarterback race, according to a report.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Northeast Ohio Media Group says the Browns feel deceived by Manziel, who told them he would leave behind his frat-boy ways from college if the team drafted him. Instead, he’s been out partying frequently since being drafted, spending weekends in Las Vegas, LA, Houston and other cities.

Cabot says the photo of Manziel with a rolled-up bill in a Las Vegas bathroom — a photo that implies potential cocaine use — is just one thing that has the team concerned. But that’s not the only reason the Browns are supposedly worried.

Here’s what Cabot writes:

Manziel regressed in practice after the first week of organized team activities, and some in the organization attributed it to too much jet-setting and not enough dedication to the playbook.

Team officials had bought into Manziel’s pre-draft promises to tone down the partying and leave his frat-boy lifestyle back in College Station, Texas, and they’ve been stunned by his non-stop antics, sources said.

Manziel has stood up to some of the criticism about him traveling/partying by saying he could study his playbook while also enjoying himself. Some with the Browns apparently feel otherwise.

Cleveland head coach Mike Pettine has plans to announce a starting quarterback by Week 3 of the preseason. Brian Hoyer will end up being the starter in all likelihood; Pettine has said Hoyer is the team’s starter for now.

Though the Browns have concerns about Manziel’s behavior, the rookie supposedly has been working hard. He’s been working out and practicing with his private quarterback coach George Whitfield, according to Cabot’s report. There is also the belief that he will be more focused and plugged-in now that camp has started.

I find the timing of this report extremely interesting. The Browns went from supporting Manziel and defending his behavior to now saying Hoyer is the starter. Is it possible they also let this story out because they’re trying to scare Manziel straight? It’s not a stretch for me to believe that could be the case.

Mike Pettine spoke to Johnny Manziel about rolled up bill picture

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine says he has spoken to Johnny Manziel about some of the photos that have been taken of the former Texas A&M star throughout the offseason. More specifically, Pettine asked Manziel about the photo that showed him rolling up a $20 bill in front of a bathroom sink.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, Manziel “responded positively” to Pettine’s questions. Pettine would not, however, share any details of the conversation.

“I don’t want to get into a (public) discussion of every picture that comes out, but I talked to him about it,” the first-year coach said. “We anticipate this will quiet down once the season starts. As committed as Johnny is to football, this stuff should not be an issue once camp gets underway.”

Pettine said that he would only be concerned about Manziel’s behavior if it continued throughout the season, which seemed to indicate that the team is not all that thrilled with the headlines Manziel has created. Pettine also said he spoke to Manziel about the infamous “money phone” video and has reason to believe it was not recent.

“I haven’t verified it, but somebody told me that it wasn’t recent,” Pettine said.

Rookies will report to Browns training camp on Wednesday. As we inch closer to the regular season, the spotlight on Manziel is only going to get brighter. If Manziel struggles on the field and photos of him partying continue to surface, the media is going to crucify him.

Johnny Manziel scores Snickers endorsement deal

Johnny ManzielJohnny Manziel may not see the field in the early part of his rookie season, but that does not mean he won’t be all over our TVs.

Manziel has signed an endorsement deal with Snickers and will be featured in their “You’re Not You When You’re Hungry” campaign, according to ESPN.

Manziel’s deal with Snickers comes after he’s filmed commercials for McDonald’s, Nissan and Nike. The Snickers commercial will be a national spot.

Johnny Manziel racking up endorsement deals without even playing an NFL snap? Great googly moogly.

Drake jokes about Johnny Manziel doing shrooms (Video)

Drake ESPYsDrake did a decent job of delivering his monologue at the ESPYs on Wednesday night. While there were plenty of jokes that needed work and missed their mark, he was able to get enough laughs to make it through. One of Drake’s best bits came at the expense of his good friend Johnny Manziel.

When talking about LeBron James’ decision to return to Cleveland, Drake joked that the only person who might not be happy about it is Manziel. He then poked fun at Johnny Football’s party boy lifestyle.

“Right before I came out here I got a text from him asking if I wanted to do mushrooms and watch the ESPYs together tonight,” Drake joked. “Johnny, I hope you understand this is why I couldn’t come, but I’m sure this looks amazing to you right now.”

As expected, Manziel took the ribbing in stride.

Braxton Miller thinks he, LeBron and Johnny Manziel are now faces of Ohio

Braxton-Miller-LeBron

Braxton Miller may have officially won LeBron-mania on Friday with the tweet he sent shortly after LeBron James announced he was going back to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Cleveland is suddenly a sports town loaded with star power. LeBron and his buddy Johnny Manziel are the biggest names, but Miller is still big man on campus (literally speaking, of course).

“Ohio,” Miller wrote along with the photo you see above before deleting his tweet.

Why did Miller delete that? King James, Johnny Football and BRAXTON MILLER all together in one sports city! Is this everything the fans of Cleveland could have hoped for or what? They’re officially the new Big Three.

Is Colleen Crowley Johnny Manziel’s new girlfriend?

Johnny Manziel Red Sox game

Johnny Manziel showed up at Fenway Park on Wednesday night to take in the Red Sox-White Sox game, and the guy was balling as usual.

Colleen CrowleyJohnny Football was pictured hanging with four women, all of whom were predictably attractive. But these weren’t just any women. One of these girls has become a regular on Johnny’s side and may be his new girlfriend.

The girl in question is a Texas girl named Colleen Crowley. She and her two sisters — Robyn and Taylor — were at the game with Manziel, along with another gal named Jessica Jarvis.

You may be familiar with Robyn Crowley; she’s the girlfriend of Rockets free agent Chandler Parsons.

But back to Colleen.

Things are getting pretty serious between her and Johnny. I mean Manziel called her “bae” on Instagram. Calling someone your “bae” on IG is like one step away from a marriage proposal these days.

Manziel actually spent a few weekends with Colleen last month. She shared this picture on Instagram of them at a club together:

She’s also quite the party girl.

Johnny Manziel was not doing cocaine in the bathroom

I don’t know how much clearer I have to be about what Johnny Manziel was doing in the bathroom in Las Vegas when he was pictured allegedly rolling some bills. You may think he was getting ready to snort some lines of cocaine, but that’s not what he was doing.

He was just folding some paper and doing some origami:

Sorry, he was not doing origami. He was actually just rolling some Fruit by the Foot:


You people and your wild minds …
