Johnny Manziel: Browns didn't do homework on me

Johnny Manziel: Browns didn't do homework on me

While on the Dan Patrick Show, Manziel actually blamed the Cleveland Browns organization for not realizing he was lazy when it came to watching film.

The ongoing attempt of former Browns draft bust Johnny Manziel to rehabilitate his tattered image continues. Manziel talked about being chosen by the Browns with the 22nd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and basically said they were idiots for investing a high pick him. I didn't know that.

"If Cleveland did any of their homework, they would have known that I was a guy who didn't came in every day and watch film". I was a guy that didn't really know X's and O's of football. Coaches prefer players who know the playbook by heart and don't ask questions.

If you're not familiar with the Spring League, it bills itself as an elite D-league and NFL scouting event, and it's also where Manziel is going to begin his comeback.

Manziel has been working out regularly, studying with quarterback guru George Whitfield. "I see successful guys in the National Football League, and what they do in the offseason, and the time that they put in, that makes them good players". "He gave me a blueprint, and that's something that I still have to this day: he gave me a nice blueprint of what it takes to be a solid pro, and I'm very thankful to Josh and all that he did for me in Cleveland".

In one way, Manziel wasn't exactly breaking news with his X's and O's admission Wednesday.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy victor from Texas A&M had a subpar stint with the Browns from 2014-2015. So he had a lot to learn about running an National Football League offense - one that was far more complicated than anything he ran in College Station - when the Browns gave him their playbook after the draft, and apparently he didn't spend much time doing so.
