Johnny Manziel NFL Contract Over with Cleveland Browns? Dallas Cowboys Trade Rumors?
The Cleveland Browns are in the middle of some rebuilding after a disappointing 2015 season, but have we seen the last of the major firings from the NFL team? You're most likely aware of the troubles that quarterback Johnny Manziel has caused the team, the most recent incident involving an impromptu trip to Las Vegas while he was undergoing concussion protocol, the night before the last game of the season. Is Manziel's contract going to get torn up at Cleveland and should we take the Dallas Cowboys trade rumors seriously now?
"If that's a true report that's obvious for him some things are more important than football and being a starting quarterback and that's something that probably needs to be addressed in the offseason," left tackle Joe Thomas said of his teammate, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
"He's his own man. You can't really tell him what to do," Browns defensive tackle Danny Shelton said of Manziel's weekend, according to Cleveland.com. Shelton and receiver Andrew Hawkins apparently saw Manziel this week, but did not speak with the QB.
It sounds like the now-ex-coach Mike Pettine was willing to support Manziel a bit more, even after this weekend, but his own firing means the QB might've lost a strong ally in staying on the team- but does he want to stay on the team (via Deadspin)?
According to UPROXX, Manziel is hoping to make the move to the Dallas Cowboys, a team that is hoping to land a backup quarterback for Tony Romo, who was injured twice this season.
We'll have to see how this story progresses before we know more about Manziel's future in the league.
