Browns new head coach says the team did “NOT” talk with Johnny Manziel at Combine
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns coach Mike Pettine revealed Monday that the club didn’t interview quarterback Johnny Manziel at the NFL Combine last month.
“We didn’t speak to him at the combine,” Pettine said at the Cleveland Auto Show at the I-X Center. “I didn’t personally. He was not part of the formal interviews.”
Pettine stressed however, that the Browns will have plenty of time to get to know their top targets in advance of the draft, May 8-10.
“As we evaluate those positions, we’ll make sure that whatever access or interaction we need with that player, we’ll get that done.”
