Via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns quarterback flew to Las Vegas to unwind a bit during a short break in offseason workouts.
Cabot has a collection of tweets and photos showing Manziel in Sin City, doing things that kids his age with money tend to do. At a time when the Browns have seemed to be intent on knocking him down a peg or two, they don’t have a problem with Johnny being Johnny away from the field.
“He’s almost like the Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth throwback — he’s a guy’s guy,” G.M. Ray Farmer told 92.3 The Fan on Wednesday, via Cabot. “When you see him he’s having fun, he’s partying, he’s doing his thing. I think people are attracted to the fact that not only does he make plays and is a really good athlete . . . he’s a really good player, but he lives life.”
As long as he stays out of trouble (and the champagne spraying could get him a little closer to the proverbial line), the team and the league will have no issue with Manziel living life. Work hard, play hard has become a mantra for many, and Manziel will be putting in plenty of work as he tries to climb from No. 3 to No. 1 on the depth chart.
