Johnny Manziel Slammin' Champagne ... During 2 Night Party Bender


Last week the Cleveland Browns announced that Johnny Manziel was going to be their starting quarterback for the remainder of the season.

The move acted as a tryout of sorts, giving Manziel an extended period to prove himself after only seeing limited opportunities through his first two seasons.

That chance is over now after aTMZ video showed Manziel partying in Austin, Texas, reportedly during his bye week.

According to TMZ, Manziel spent the weekend partying and drinking, despite saying he was going to simply relax during the weekend off.

On Tuesday, Browns coach Mike Pettine confirmed that Manziel would not only be coming off the bench, he would be third on the quarterback depth chart.





Cleveland.com's Kay Cabot reported earlier that Pettine soundedupset by the video. He called it disappointing and said it was concerning when a player has a "repeated pattern of behavior" like Manziel.

Josh McCown, who had been out with a ribs injury, is now healthy and able to go. With Austin Davis passing Manziel on the depth chart, it almost assures Manziel will not be playing this week, unless both McCown and Haslam get hurt. if the Browns sit Manziel.

While players should be able to spend their free time however they like, the video is troubling considering Manziel's history with alcohol. He spent 10 weeks in rehab during the offseason and seemed to be a more low-key person afterward. He played well to start the season before being benched for McCown.

During the season, Manziel had a run-in with police after he was involved in a domestic violence dispute with his girlfriend. He reportedly hit his girlfriend "a couple of times" and had had an alcoholic drink earlier in the day.
