Manziel was demoted from the starting role to third on the depth chart earlier this week.
The 2-8 Browns appear to be broken beyond repair – and there are still 6 games to play starting Monday night against the Ravens in front of a nationwide audience on ESPN.
Fans are outraged that Manziel was benched over the latest videos and pictures that hit the tabloid websites during the bye week, but veterans Joe Thomas and Brian Hartline hinted that there is more to this than what everyone assumes.
Mike Pettine spent Wednesday addressing his decision to bench Johnny Manziel and what the future could hold for the Browns’ quarterback.
Browns head coach Mike Pettine addressed the quarterback change Tuesday evening on his coaches show.
A week after being named the starter for the rest of the season, Johnny Manziel has been benched.
Before Monday night’s game with Orlando, J.R. Smith made several stops around Cleveland where he handed out clothes to the needy.
Johnny Manziel fielded questions about his off-the-field behavior during a trip to help out at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank Monday.
