BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Johnny Manziel rejoined his teammates in time to pack up after another dismal season.
Manziel was at the team’s headquarters Monday as the Browns regrouped one day after a loss to Pittsburgh and the firings of coach Mike Pettine and general manager Ray Farmer. According to several players, Manziel, who was seen in Las Vegas over the weekend, was in attendance as Cleveland’s players were addressed by owner Jimmy Haslam and Sashi Brown, the team’s newly appointed head of football operations.
The Browns were unsure of Manziel’s whereabouts on Sunday. Manziel was not required to be at the season finale because he was recovering from a concussion and following the NFL’s protocol on head injuries. Haslam said the quarterback missed a medical treatment at the team’s facility.
Manziel did not come into the locker room to speak with reporters. Manziel, a former Heisman Trophy winner, played QB at Texas A&M before joining the pros.
