Mike Evans had ringside seats for the Johnny Football show at Texas A&M.
And based on his experience, he doesn’t think the Browns have anything to worry about regarding the extracurricular activities of Johnny Manziel.
“In training camp, I don’t think he’ll go out at all,” the Buccaneers rookie wideout said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “He’ll be committed and devoted and fighting for a starting job.”
Whether it’s partying with Rob Gronkowski or swimming with the swans or flashing the money phone, Manziel’s off-field life has become a subject of fascination before he plays his first preseason game.
But Evans said Manziel knows when to flip the switch.
“He’s a great guy,” Evans said. “He practiced hard. He came to work. He’s one of my best friends. So I wouldn’t trade him for anybody. I think he’ll be a great pro. He’s a great guy. He’s a better guy than most people give him credit for.
“It’s just he’s under a bigger microscope than everybody. Being a Heisman Trophy winner and coming out of college, he’s just under a bigger microscope. Everybody does it. When he gets on the field, all of that will go to rest.”
That last part is probably wishful thinking.
