Johnny Manziel’s former teammate says he didn’t study on the weekends

Johnny Manziel's case is still open with the Dallas Police Department

Oh Johnny

Nate Burleson was a teammate with Johnny Manziel in 2014, and the former Browns wide out threw his former quarterback under the bus when talking to “The Ken Carmen Show with Anthony Lima” about Manziel poor work ethic.

“I saw somewhat of a lack of dedication. I saw a guy that would rush out of the facility to go enjoy the fruits of his labor and the friendships that he had,” Burleson explained, as transcribed by Josh Edwards of “I would see a guy coming in that did not study the playbook as much as he should and struggle in the classroom and then adversely struggle on the field. That was one thing that I quickly realized, when I first got there, they handed out iPads. It’s the new generation so I studied on the iPad but I also asked the coach for the paper playbook.”

Burleson said coaches could check to see if a player logged in their Ipads, and Burleson said Manziel never logged into the Ipads.

“I heard that Johnny wasn’t opening up his iPad on the weekend because everything is tracked,” he added. “You log in and coaches know when you are looking at your iPad. I knew then that the dedication wasn’t there. Was I disappointed? Definitely.”
