Veterans talk better about Johnny Manziel than Justin Gilbert

Did the Cleveland Browns make a mistake with Justin Gilbert? It sure sounds like it. The veteran players went off on the first round cornerback last week for his attitude. Well today Donte Whitner who slammed Gilbert, talked up Manziel.

Whitner said he doesn’t know how Manziel handles himself in offensive meetings but likes what he sees on the practice field.

“From what I’ve seen and going against him on the scout team, he looked pretty good to us,” Whitner said. “We’ll see. He only played, what, seven quarters, six quarters. So you can’t really judge based on that. So we’ll have to wait probably another six months to a year to see how [he] really pan[s] out.”

It sounds like the real problem here was Gilbert not Manziel.
