Sounds like the Browns are throwing in the towel on Johnny Football

johnny manziel hbo hard knocksJohnny Manziel might not make it as long in the NFL as Tim Tebow after all.  According to Chris Mortensen, the Browns are ready to throw in the towel on the former 22nd pick in the NFL Draft. 

“I think about 90 percent that they have moved on (from Manziel) in their own minds except that they really don’t know who they’re going to get when Johnny leaves rehab, which has been an extended stay — a two-month stay,” Mortensen said. “He should be getting out sometime in the first week of April if they’re satisfied that he’s ready to go out and get into society and that whatever deep-rooted problems that he had has been addressed.

“The bottom line is that Johnny Manziel’s future with the Browns has been in question. When they were putting together half of a new offensive staff, Manziel’s name barely even came up in conversation.”

This is pretty interesting and makes you wonder what the Browns plan to do.  They could be looking to trade up to draft another quarterback, but Manziel could be put on the NFI list, if he is not out of rehab soon.
