At long last, the rocky marriage between the Cleveland Browns and Johnny Manziel has been severed.
The #Browns have waived QB Johnny Manziel.
It was only a matter of time until Manziel was waived by the Browns, especially after the comments from new front office head honcho Sashi Brown and new Head Coach Hue Jackson which made it clear time had run out on Johnny Football’s time in Cleveland. When rumors of a potential trade didn’t pan out, Manziel was gone.
Now, the serial party boy will have to find a new home, which will figure to be quite difficult in the already crazy QB shuffle of this offseason. Manziel threw for a total of 1,675 yards with seven TD’s and seven INTs in his 14 games played with the Browns after being drafted in the first round back in 2014.
The internet already having some fun with this news.
Thank god. Browns waive Johnny Manziel. It's over. Finally.

I’d pour one out for the Johnny Manziel era in Cleveland, but he’d probably punch me for committing a party foul.

Someone should wake Johnny Manziel up and tell him he got fired on his day off.
