Hue Jackson “Disappointed,” Browns Release Statement On Johnny Manziel Following Latest Incident

Browns Head Coach Hue Jackson appeared on WKNR ESPN 850 on Tuesday morning with Tony Grossi and spoke about Johnny Manziel’s latest incident, in which police were called to a Fort Worth, Texas residence. The NFL is investigating the incident.

“My general reaction would be disappointment,” Jackson told the “Hey Tony” show. “As I’ve said many times, I would like for the Cleveland Browns’ players to conduct themselves in a manner that represents the organization well. Obviously, that reflected differently on what we want to have happen. Obviously, it’s a process that we’re going through, and we’ll continue to go through it.”

Jackson continues to stress that he will treat Manziel the same as any other player on the roster, telling Grossi, “Obviously, as I’ve said from day one, I’m going to continue to evaluate Johnny, just as I would any member of this football team. Obviously, there’s other circumstances that you also have to evaluate when you’re considering putting everything in the pot to make decisions as you move forward.

“But again, he’s no different than any other player. We’re going to continue to evaluate him as a football player and as a member of this football team.”

Sashi Brown issued a statement early on Tuesday afternoon, saying, “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.”

The earliest the Browns can waive Manziel if they wish to do so is March 9th.
