Rumor has it, the reason the Cleveland Browns didn’t bring Johnny Manziel on the road with them for their last game of the 2015 season wasn’t because he had a concussion – that was just a big fat lie/cover. A source with the Browns “who had contact with Manziel that day told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that he ‘was heavily hung over on something.'”
The NFL responded in a statement: “Johnny Manziel came to our facility on the morning of December 30th and complained of concussion symptoms,” a statement released by the team said. “He was tested by an independent neurologist and entered the league’s concussion protocol. He remained in the protocol until January 12th after being cleared by the independent neurologist.”
On the Friday before Super Bowl 50, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said, “We take every allegation of violations of our policies and procedures very seriously,” yet the NFL has yet to punish Manziel in any way despite his multiple run-ins with the law.
The latest timeline is as follows:
- On January 29th, Johnny and his girlfriend got into an altercation at a Dallas Hotel. Despite the police being called and a helicopter search for him, he was not arrested.
- The next day, Johnny’s father Paul told The Dallas Morning News that he worries if his son doesn’t get help, he “won’t live to see his 24th birthday.”
- The following week, on February 9th, Manziel’s 73-year-old grandfather Norman Paul Manziel told the Daily News shared his thoughts on Manziel’s relationship with his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley: ‘The girl has her problems. I’m not saying Johnny’s troubles are all caused by her, but…” Grandpa Manziel did not finish his sentence.
According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, the Browns will cut Manziel on March 9th.
