New Browns coach Hue Jackson said he was “disappointed” in quarterback Johnny Manziel during a Tuesday radio interview. Police investigated an incident involving Manziel and his ex-girlfriend over the weekend. Manziel was not arrested, but police were still investigating the matter.
“My general reaction would be disappointment,” Jackson said on ESPN Cleveland 850’s “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 through it.”
Don’t expect the Browns’ process of evaluating Manziel to last much longer. This latest incident gives Jackson and the Browns more reason to tell Manziel goodbye.
Holding the second pick in the draft, the Browns have the ammunition to draft and develop another young quarterback. As for Manziel’s future, the big question is whether all 32 teams are wary of him at his point. If Manziel wants NFL teams to trust him, he needs to start giving them reason to.
