The Cleveland Browns may not have an elite quarterback room, but there is no chance that head coach Hue Jackson would be open to a return of Johnny Manziel.
Former NFL quarterback (and we use that term loosely) was in the news over the weekend as he has allegedly talked to teams about making a return to the league.
Manziel was at a fantasy football convention in Dallas and, according to Jon Machota at the Dallas Morning News, has had conversations with unnamed NFL teams about mounting a comeback:
“I know the situation that I put myself in. I know the year I took off and obviously the mistakes that I made. Right now, I’m hopeful. I’m really hopeful. I think that I made some progress in that regard. But we’ll see. Whenever I get a call, I’ll do whatever I can to make the most of it.”
It is not hard to imagine what those conversations have gone like:
Manziel: Ready for me to come in and wreck your team, I mean wreck the league?
NFL general manager: Let me get back to you on that.
It’s great the Manziel claims to have learned from his mistakes and is working to improve his situation. We would never wish ill will on anyone. But in his time in Cleveland he always had the ability to say that things were getting better, only for his actions to reveal that was not the case.
If he truly is serious about resuming his career, there is zero chance that will happen with the Browns.
