Ray Farmer the former Cleveland Browns general manager spoke to the Media today regarding the draft and talked about drafting Johnny Manziel. Farmer admitted that Johnny Manziel’s moxie was a little too much for the Browns.
“The club has to be prepared to handle the player regardless of their celebrity, regardless of their position, regardless of what they’re required to do,” Farmer said on Monday’s ESPN “NFL Insiders,” as transcribed by John Breech of CBS Sports.
“It’s celebrity,” Farmer continued. “This player had unique celebrity that I don’t think the league has seen in a lot of different players. A lot of guys come to the NFL and make their celebrity there, this young man came in with a Rolling Stone magazine cover type of persona. That brings a whole new element of how you try to handle the person that comes with it.”
