According to one NFL insider, the end of the Johnny Manziel era in Cleveland will end on Sunday when the Browns finish a horrible season at home against the Steelers.
John Clayton of ESPN reports that he thinks Manziel is done as far as his tenure in Cleveland goes, stating the following in a segment on ‘SportsCenter’:
“I think he’s over, I really do, because the team now is in a position to draft — most likely — the first quarterback in the draft, and whatever they do, and if they do take a quarterback, you know that they’re not going to stay with Johnny Manziel.
“They’ll try to flip him for a low draft choice – fifth-round, sixth-round pick – Dallas would be a likely destination, but I think you can understand that there’s disappointment with the way this all worked out.”
Here’s the video of Clayton on Manziel, who won’t play Sunday against the Steelers due to a concussion.
