The Cleveland Browns are apparently ready to move on from quarterback Johnny Manziel.
Browns EVP of Football Operations Sashi Brown released the following statement, per Browns.com:
We’ve been clear about expectations for our players on and off the field. Johnny’s continual involvement in incidents that run counter to those expectations undermines the hard work of his teammates and the reputation of our organization. His status with our team will be addressed when permitted by league rules. We will have no further comment at this time.
Manziel has been in the headlines for the wrong reasons recently. The NFL is currently investigating an incident that led to the police searching for Manziel.
According to ProFootballTalk, the Browns can’t release Manziel before March 9, which is the start of the league year.
The Browns drafted Manziel in the first round of the 2014 draft. Manziel started eight games during the two seasons he spent in Cleveland, and totaled a 2-6 record.
