Johnny Manziel: 5 potential trade destinations

Johnny Manziel was one of the most hyped up prospects in the 2014 NFL Draft class, but his off-the-field issues forced him to drop to the 22nd overall pick. The Cleveland Browns were in desperate need of a quarterback, and they decided to take a flier on Manziel.

Unfortunately, his first season showed that he was nowhere near being ready for the NFL. He started in just two games after being beat out in preseason and training camp action by Brian Hoyer, and put up horrible numbers in those two starts. Throughout his entire rookie season, Manziel ended up throwing for 175 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions.

Those numbers aren't going to get the job done for any starting quarterback, and it has made Manzie's future in Cleveland extremely cloudy.

Not only did he play poorly on-the-field, he also got into some trouble off-the-field. His most notable issues were not showing up for a practice late in the year after a party the night before, and then checking into a rehab facility after the season. Hopefully rehab will do good things for him moving forward, but the Browns aren't banking on that possibility.

Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland has called for the Browns to admit a mistake and trade Manziel. That leads to the question of which teams would be the best places for him to go.
