Most of the attention Thursday, as expected, was on College Station for Johnny Manziel’s pro day workout.
But not all the attention.
According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the Bears and the Browns were the only teams not present for Manziel’s workout.
You can understand the Bears not bothering, since they’re well-stocked at quarterback (and wide receiver, so Mike Evans probably isn’t on the radar).
But the Browns are squarely in the market for one, but avoided Manziel’s as they have others.
They’ll bring the quarterbacks in for private workouts, and he’ll be among them.
For his part, Manziel wasn’t offended.
“I’m not disappointed,” he said, via Tom Reed of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “If they wanted to be here they had the opportunity to. I’m not going to think anything of it. I didn’t even know that was the case. I’m sure they have their own standard or whatever it may be.
“I don’t hold it against them. It is what it is.”
The Browns will have plenty of chances to talk to him later, but their apparent decision still seems odd, for a team that has had such problems finding a quarterback.
